A Book of Sparks
A study in Christian Mindfullness by Shaun Lambert.
A Book of Sparks takes us deeper into God through a 40-day study, which uses Mark’s gospel and the reality of the 21st century world around us. Examining the watchfulness modelled by Jesus, the book demonstrates how God can transform us as we develop our own watchfulness.
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.’ (Romans 12:2)
Yes, but how? This new book comes out of one man’s personal journey of transformation.
Shaun Lambert weaves the ancient disciplines of contemplation with his modern understanding of psychology to unlock a Biblical wisdom. Transformation comes through what Shaun calls ‘mindFullness’, the practice of being filled with the awareness of the presence of God.
Examining the watchfulness modelled by Jesus, the book demonstrates how God can transform us as we develop our own watchfulness. Key
contemplative practices such as the Jesus Prayer and Lectio Divina are highlighted.
With a foreword by Simon Walker, the book also has heavy weight endorsements. For example, Mark Woods, consulting editor, The Methodist Recorder and formerly editor, The Baptist Times, writes;
'Shaun Lambert is both intellectually and spiritually acute, and brings these resources to bear on some of the unexamined assumptions we carry with us in church and society. This book is full of wisdom.'
Pregnant and provocative, this book offers a way of discipleship as well as the path for contemplative evangelism.
