The Deepest Well

Healing the Long-Term Effects of Childhood Adversity
By: Nadine Burke Harris

Book Reivew

Nadine Harris introduces what is an am emerging understanding of the effects of childhood trauma stress on people's health over the long term. The format of the book is heavily story-based, and while that is not normally my preference, I believe it is necessarily to help build the foundation for understanding that Nadine is attempting to develop in readers. Not only is she trying to raise awareness, along with that is a pervasive mental block to this understanding. Thus, it needs more than just presenting the concept. Harris lays out the challenges she faced over many years of attempting to present these concepts. This helps us understand why people struggle digest these things.

As I care for people in a the spiritual realm, I have gained great insight in seeking an interdisciplinary approach. I may not agree with the world view usually presented in these types of works, I always walk away with many more tools to help me understand how God has made us, the extent of the effects of brokenness in a person, and new insights with how to help a person process brokenness with God's help.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.
