She is also a contributor to best-selling author, Lee Strobel’s latest book, The Case for Heaven (2021).

Sharon holds a Ph.D. in brain imaging from the University of Cambridge and held research positions at the University of Oxford and the Medical College of Wisconsin.


Am I Just My Brain?

Brain scientist Sharon Dirckx lays out the current understanding of who we are from biologists, philosophers, theologians and psychologists, and points towards a bigger picture, that suggests answers to the fundamental questions of our existence. Not just ""What am I?"", but ""Who am I?""-and ""Why am I?""
