Reviews - What do customers think about Kindred Souls: Connecting Through Spiritual Friendship?

Kindred Souls  Aug 12, 2007
Kindred souls is an excellent resource for women who are looking to deepen relationships on a spiritual level. Stephanie Ford challenges her readers to realize the responsibility and priviledge of spiritual friendship. It is not for the faint hearted, but for those desiring to be sharpened and molded by others on the same spiritual plane. I recommend it to women who are in accountability groups as a way to deepen the use of your time and relationships.
 
Enlightening and insightful  Apr 9, 2007
Dr. Ford's book Kindred Souls is an insightful piece of work that interweaves church history, theology, spiritual direction, and personal antedotes to engage the reader in deep consideration of the friendships that mean the most to us.

Each chapter builds on the next from a brief introduction to spiritual friends and concluding with guidance on issues that should be considered before and while engaging in spiritual friendships. It offers a brief, and helpful, history of friendship within the Christian tradition and invites the reader to consider how God is central in all spiritual friendships.

Those less familiar with church history, spiritual direction, and theology will find Dr. Ford's work a pleasant and inviting work that is accessible and applicable. Those familiar with and/or educated in religious studies will find new resources to consider in their use of this book and its implications for congregational and seminary life.

All readers will find in Dr. Ford's work a spirit of playful engagement that is an inviting as a warm fire on a cold winter day. There is an air of familarity and openness that is refreshing and invites the reader to explore honestly their own experiences with spiritual friendships.
