Bipolar in Barbados: Mania or the Holy Spirit? (Paperback)
Mania or the Holy Spirit?
That is the main question Christian Browne found himself asking 12 years after his first manic episode (recounted in Bipolar in Barbados: A Memoir of My First Manic Episode).
Was my experience of God within me, the Holy Spirit, really God through and through? Was my experience of God purely biological? Was the Holy Spirit a chemical reaction in my brain? Or was the Holy Spirit a series of electrical signals flowing along synapses and neurons?
When a series of unfortunate circumstances creates a shortage of lithium Christian finds himself lead on a spiritual journey which takes him halfway around the world and deeper into his faith than ever before. Recommended for anyone who has experienced profoundly powerful spiritual experiences during the course of their bipolar disorder.
