Introducing Spiritual Direction
This clear and practical guide to what happens in spiritual direction throws valuable light on something that is a huge help for many, yet sometimes seems a little unnerving for those considering it. It includes a number of first-person accounts – from spiritual directors and from those they have guided. It provides insight into why individuals seek direction, how they are guided (for example in the business of prayer), and what it is like to be in a relationship of spiritual direction. The book offers an all-round picture of the process, and will be of particular interest to those wondering whether to seek a spiritual director.
‘Reflecting on wide experience, Peter Ball offers us a book full of practical wisdom. It will serve as a fine introduction to spiritual direction but will also be read with profit by those of long experience. Clearly written, it is profound in its teaching and implication.’ – The Revd Dr Brian haymes, Minister of Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church. ‘This …eminently practical book …shows us the practice of spiritual direction as involving a slowly growing relationship, which usually works gently and gradually, but which at times can open the way into quite new discoveries in the life of prayer and faith.’ – Canon Donald Allchin, Author and former Canon of Canterbury Cathedral. ‘A practical and profound guide for anyone interested in the ministry of spiritual accompaniment.’ – The Revd Andrew Walker, Director of the London Centre for Spirituality.
