    A Book of Sparks

    A Study in Christian Mindfullness

    In this second edition of A Book of Sparks, Shaun Lambert offers an extended introduction into the universal human capacity for attention and awareness, known in the world of psychology as 'mindfulness.' Shaun shows how biblical awareness and attention overlaps with secular mindfulness, and has distinctives. Transformation comes through what Shaun calls 'mindFullness'--the practice of being filled with the awareness of the presence of God.
