Using one of the most well-researched brain tests in the country, Dr. Henslin discusses and teaches us the vital connection between spirituality, sexuality and how our emotional and physical health play into these factors. Dr. Henslin identifies and discusses 5 different types of lovers in this book (* Scattered Lover * Over-focused Lover * Blue Mood Lover * Agitated Lover * Anxious Lover) with great insight, sensitivity and provides effect solutions for each category.
I do have to tell you that this book is not a quick read, the information can be a little overwhelming, at least at first. Dr. Henslin provides his information with a unique blend of enjoyable story examples and scientific fact. The book is filled with charts and pictures to help you get the idea of the information he is providing and to top everything off he provides little quizzes so you can help locate what category you may fall into.
At first I was a little hesitant to agree with some of what he was saying as it seemed he was really leaning more toward supplements, and in some cases medication, but he does redeem himself by connecting it to the vital importance that a relationship with God has in our lives and in doing so he brings a nice balance to the need to take care of ourselves physically and emotionally as well as spiritually. The three are inseparable.
It is a good book. I lent my copy to a psychologist (in our church he’s not mine rofl), and he read it very quickly and will be recommending the book himself. And to add to it’s credibility I’ve applied some of the suggestions to my own life over the last 2 – 3 weeks. To my pleasure it’s helped improve some moods!
Good read. Take your time with it.
