In Reset: Live Every Day Like It’s a New Day, pastor and author Dale Hummel explains it’s not just about what you think, but how you think. Using cutting-edge neuroscience and ancient Christian principles, he shows how our minds can be both our best friend and worst enemy, why the quest for the abundant spiritual life is so elusive and how we can retrain our minds to work the way God intended. Hummel offers a simple but effective daily “reset” program based on the fruits of the Spirit, transforming your mind from your biggest obstacle to spiritual growth into its greatest asset.

The book reflected current thinking on various aspects of neuroscience, emotional dysregulation and psychological disorders that are occasionally discussed on various podcasts. However, it goes much deeper by tying it to the spiritual dimension which has eternal ramifications.
