From Publishers Weekly
Commonly associated with monastic orders and the mystical practices of Roman Catholic saints, the discipline of spiritual direction is one that conservative Protestants have approached with caution and caveats. That may be changing. Well known in evangelical circles, Demarest, a popular author and professor at Denver Seminary, argues that spiritual counselors and "soul friends" are indeed part of God's plan for the converted Christian. Although comfortable referring to classic spiritual authorities like Teresa of Avila and the Desert Fathers (and Mothers), Demarest believes that "soul-care"-relationships between experienced Christians and those seeking guidance in faith-are driven by the believer's fundamental need to imitate Christ's life and character. "In Jesus Christ, then, we find the pattern of spiritual guidance and the qualities of the ideal spiritual director," he writes. At the heart of the book is a group of meditations on various Gospel passages; Demarest uses an event in the life of Jesus Christ to draw some conclusions about his character and relationships. One of a series of books on spiritual formation offered by NavPress, this volume offers readers application questions at the end of each chapter. The author's focus on Jesus as principal spiritual mentor should allay conservatives' concerns about extra-biblical eclecticism, and his balanced and straightforward style should also give this volume wide appeal. One minor gripe: in a book that avoids any controversy over gender roles, the occasional use of the word "man" instead of "humanity" is jarring. (Jan.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

Reviews - What do customers think about SOUL GUIDE (Spiritual Formation Line)?

Wonderful guide for Christian living  Jun 13, 2005
I thought this was a very well written and practical guide for Christian living. Demarest gives numerous examples of how we should live our lives by following the greatest example we have, the life of Jesus Christ. He covers many topics pertaining to life that I would have never considered and carefully examines each topic and provides thought provoking insights that kept my interest through the entire book. A top ten favorite for my booklist.
 
Insightful and refreshing look at the "heart" discipleship  Mar 22, 2003
Whether you view yourself as a "spiritual director" or not, this book has a lot to offer in terms of insights into individual spiritual growth. Squarely within the evangelical Christian tradition, the author presents a refreshing emphasis on the personal and interpersonal aspects of living faith. He provides a general explanation of his approach to spiritual direction and then proceeds, for the bulk of the book, to illustrate the techniques used by Jesus to guide people to faith and spiritual growth. The book is insightful in considering how people think and relate to spiritual issues and struggles. You can tell the author has actual dealt with real people in the real world. Finally, the author avoided the tendancy of some to simply spiritualize everything and subject all problems to a "faith formula." It is well written and provides questions for personal reflection throughout.
