Mind and spirit


BURNOUT: A spiritual crisis on the way home is a short guide to this condition, analysing it in the light of the circumstances of people who work in caring services in Western societies. Stephen Wright distinguises it from stress, and explains it as a spiritual crisis. A self-assessment questionnaire is included, and guidance on what helps and hinders recovery (Sacred Space Publications, £4.95; 978-0-9560303-4-4).

You’re Not Crazy — It’s Your Mother by Danu Morgan is a study of narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), with specific reference to the mother-daughter relationship. The first part of the book looks at what NPD is and its effects; the second at how to be freed of its legacy (DLT, £9.99 (£9); 978-0-232-52929-6).

The subject of True Feelings is the place of emotion in Christian life and ministry. Michael Jensen has edited the contributions to a 2011 conference at Moore Theological College in Sydney on this theme. They address emotions both divine (e.g. does God have feelings?) and human (e.g. the place of emotions in corporate worship) (Apollos, £14.99 (£13.50); 978-1-84474-593-7).

Krish Kandiah sets out 30 ways to be like Jesus for those who are not able to work miracles or save the world. His Back to the Source seeks to help people to be true disciples in the context in which they live, proposing ten ways to be like Jesus, ten to say things like Jesus, and ten to do things like Jesus (Monarch, £8.99 (£8.10); 978-0-85721-441-6).
