What is the ultimate mashup of science and belief/religion?

I'm looking for a book that is essentially a mashup of behavioral economics, social psychology, neuroscience, wisdom/bible literature, and mythology.

I have found a few that come close. Newberg's books
look good, though focused on neuroscience and belief. I've got the Principles of Neurotheology
on order, though. Joseph Campbell's books handle the mythology stuff, of course. I guess I'm looking for what would be essentially a collaboration of Newberg, Eagleman, Robert Cialdini, Thomas Merton or Thomas Kelly
, Meister Eckhart, and Dan Ariely. I see that this is a very male list of authors. I'd be grateful for feminist voices in these fields as well. And if there was a sprinkling of Jaron Lanier and/or Clay Shirky in there, that'd be okay too.
I would obviously welcome a bullseye to this request, but I will also be grateful for any sort of a "further reading" list.
