In our day of constant distractions and business it is often rare to be fully engaged in our daily and spiritual lives. Charles Stone in this book defines holy noticing as, "noticing, with holy purpose, God and His handiwork, our relationships, and our inner world of thoughts and feelings.(p. 32)" Far too often if we are honest we don't notice those things near as much as we should. In this book Charles Stone provides a guide to engage in holy noticing.

In this book Stone begins by defining holy noticing while clearly setting it apart from the mindless meditation which is often reflected in Eastern mysticism and New Age movements. Holy noticing is about cultivating greater awareness of God and others, as opposed to detaching from reality and emptying your mind. Stone shows the biblical basis for this discipline and its practice in church history. The remaining six chapters follow the acrostic BREATHE. These six areas addressed in the acrostic are our bodies, relationships, environment, emotions (affections), thoughts, and heart.

There is much to be commend in seeking to practice holy noticing particularly in regards to our relationship with God and with others. One of the greatest benefits of this book might be in how it shows how little we are engaged in everything and everyone around us while also providing practical steps to grow in holy noticing.

Disclosure: I received a copy of the book from the publisher for the purpose of reviewing it. The opinions I have expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review.

Being a Pastor is very rewarding, but can also be very frustrating. Many Pastors are overloaded with responsibilities etc. and can feel overwhelmed. Dr. Charles Stone has written a book that will help them work through the "ministry killers" that pastors deal with. My brother in law is a pastor and I know at times he struggles. I think this book would be a great help to him and to other pastors who need guidance in coming though the trials they face.
