There Are A Lot Of Riches Packed Into This Little Book. Feb 21, 2002
While this book was written to help the ordinary Christian become more of a spiritual companion to those seeking to grow in the spiritual life, it is full of wisdom for all who seek to get closer to the Lord. It focuses on underlying attitudes and key areas of focus rather than on techniques, but it also includes techniques (of prayer and discernment), and suggests some excellent criteria of good direction and prayer. The title indicates the authors' belief that true prayer will lead the mystic to social involvement and true Christian social action will lead the prophet to deeper prayer. The writers complement each other's approaches and together have a lot of experience giving spiritual direction (in the broad sense that includes all of life) and training others to do so. Their approach is contemporary, incarnational, healthy, theologically correct and unitive of many dichotomies. I highly recommend it.
Great basic book on what spiritual direction is all about! Mar 10, 2001
Ever wonder why your spiritual life is going nowhere? Ever been in the spiritual desert? This book nicely explains what spiritual direction is and isn't. I enjoyed learning about the role of spiritual companions and how they support your prayer life. This book was worth the investment.
