Dr. Charles Stone, author of Holy Noticing: The Bible, Your Brain, and the Mindful Space Between Moments, delivers again. We go through so much of life mindlessly. We don’t even remember one day to the next, one moment to the next, and we feel scatter-brained. But that’s not how God intended us to live and it’s not how Jesus lived. Stone does a nice job bringing the idea of mindfulness to Christians without importing secularism or ideas of emptying the mind as other religions promote.
I loved Stone’s previous book, Brain-Savvy Leaders: The Science of Significant Ministry. That book was a wonderful mix of science and Scripture, written in both an easy-to-understand and a simple-to-implement way. (Dr. Stone is a leading expert in neurological leadership.) But mindfulness? Everything I ever see in that area draws from Buddhism or secular-humanism or other odd places. I was nervous.
Then we had Stone on Salty Believer Unscripted to talk about Holy Noticing. Moody sent me an advanced copy and I started reading. I was pleased to see that this book was nothing as I feared. Reading the first few chapters and talking with Stone, it was obvious this book, like the previous one, is a good mix of science and Scripture. Also, the book is full of instruction and practice tips so a follower of Jesus Christ can engage in the discipline of spiritual awareness or, if you’d prefer a different term, holy noticing.
