Holy Noticing Review

Book Review: 

On my journey of writing about Christian meditation, I’ve learned the importance of mindfulness. Every time I find a Christian book that discusses this hot topic, I’m eager to get my hands on it. Holy Noticing is about much more than simply being mindful. It teaches us about how our brain processes information and how the Bible can transform our thinking.

Charles Stone writes with wisdom, intelligence and gentleness. He is a careful observer and gladly shares his insights with you. He says that holy noticing is not a replacement for spiritual disciplines like praying, reading the Bible and meditating on God’s Word. Rather, it complements and enhances those important parts of our Christian faith.

He writes about how church history supports holy noticing and lays out a six-fold biblical model for practicing it in your daily life. I like the scientific facts along with specific directives on how to put the model in motion. By putting this book into practice, you will be more centered in your mind, heart, body and soul.

You can access a wealth of free printable resources for Holy Noticing through the links provided in the book. They are ideal for using this book in your Sunday school class or your small group. Holy Noticing reminds me of some of my favorite college classes–it instructs me well through real-life examples while providing takeaways I can apply right now.

Moody Publishers generously provided a preview copy of Holy Noticing for me.
