You would never know this by the title or subtitle, but this is more of a Bible based sermon from a conservative Christian perspective than about being highly sensitive. My issue is the 'bait and switch'. By all means, write a book heavily Bible citation. Have at it, write a book that is more sermon than research. Please do not title the book so deceptively that the potential reader has less than no sincere understanding on the true nature of the piece.

A superb book that examines the problems (oops! my boss would correct me immediately for that word - 'opportunities') that beset the lives of people who have a high level of spiritual sensitivity. Some might call it 'empathy', others 'burden-bearing'. I once heard a pyschologist say about it: about one in seven people have it and they think they're crazy - the other six-sevenths know they are. It raised a laugh but unredeemed burden-bearing is no laughing matter.

As Carol says, our central nervo

A Practical and Insightful Book

Carol Brown's bok, "Highly Sensitive: Understanding Your Gift of Spiritual Sensitivity" is both practical as well as insightful. She addresses this book to those who are highly sensitive - both emotionally and spiritually - but I think any Christian can benefit from reading it.

Within the pages, she describes how often we can become burden bearers for others in both healthy and unhealthy ways. Sometimes we bear the burdens and take them to Christ through prayer and

I normally can zip right through a lot of books, but because of how in depth the author covers the subject of being highly sensitive I found myself reading slowly to digest all the insights provided.

It was refreshing to realize that my being sensitive to those around me is not a curse but a gift. My sensitivity when understood and properly processed can be a blessing as the author points out.

Have you ever wondered why others around you seem oblivious to the condition of someone whose need you

Have you ever wondered why you seem so different from everyone else around you? If so, this book just might be for you! I’ve been a “different-from-the-rest-of-the-pack” intercessor for 30 years, and all I can say is this book puts into concise, easy to understand words the things I’ve had to process all these years without really understanding why! If this sounds like you, too, then I highly recommend this book. Highly Sensitive has the “real stuff” to keep you out of trouble and on the right t ...more
