Neglect

The Silent Abuser
By: Enod Gray

Book Reivew

The core concept that in this book, that neglect is usually an unnoticed form of abuse in someone's life, is a critical concept for us to consider. After Enod Gray lays this out, she then begins to connect it to other issues - the primary one being addictions. She does an excellent job going below the surface and pulling out the full repertoire of tools the world of psychology offers; yet, she does this in an accessible way. Most readers will not feel like this is a textbook, yet for those who would like the academics of this, Enod sites other helpful sources occasionally as well. She also has a good balance of story, diagnostic, and analysis.

Occasionally Enod Gray takes aim a churches and spiritual institutions, although this is not overdone. Her points are valid and worthy of consideration. From a biblical perspective, there are some things to disagree with. That said, I still found great value in reading this and considering the main points she has to offer.

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.

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
