About the Author

Steven Urban graduated from the University of California with a degree in Psychobiology before going on to receive his medical doctorate at New York Medical College. He completed his residency training in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Johns Hopkins and was awarded an NIH Fellowship in Stroke Research at the University of Maryland. Today he is a double-board certified Physiatric Interventional Pain Specialist. He lives with his wife and in Atlanta, Georgia. Steve who is a native of Southern California, was not raised in a Christian home. While attending UCLA, his life was "interrupted" by a sensation he had never experienced before or even knew human beings could experience. Had that been the end of it, the sensation may have been dismissed as a mere fluke or some twist of the brain, but the sensation returned again and again. As a Psychobiology undergraduate student, he began to search out what caused these sensations. Along with his scientific inquires he also began to read histories, biographies, and treatises on psychology, world religions and theology. He even traveled overseas and spent time in a Tibetan monastery in Nepal. Eventually Steve read a book written by a man which would forever change his life. The man was C.S. Lewis and in his Surprised by Joy, Steve discovered a person who experienced his same sensations, yet did not forsake the use of reason and rational inquiry. The book was the final instrument that led to Steve's realization that Christ was who He claimed to be. After the four years leading to his conversion, Steve sought out several people and sources to help him deepen his relationship with Christ. Here again C.S. Lewis proved to be an invaluable guide. In Mere Christianity, Steve found a wonderful expression of Romans 1-8 leading the believer from compatibility to intimacy with Christ.

Reviews

I recommend the book for all who take their faith seriously and want to grow to be all they can be in Christ.
