Mindfulness programs are increasingly being used for issues as wide-ranging as depression, pain, employee engagement, and character development. Many Christians are wondering what to make of all this. Is there a place for mindfulness in the Christian walk?
Presenting background theory and application in terms of spiritual disciplines, the authors begin by offering a distinctively Jesus-centered approach to nonjudgmental awareness and then apply the benefits it provides to different areas of our faith. Readers are encouraged not to be fearful of the widespread teaching of mindfulness but instead to be equipped to use all that is good in the practice of mindfulness to develop their relationship with Jesus. The book includes questions for group study.
