Spiritual Direction and the Care of Souls

Edited with Gary Moon, this is a compilation of chapters written by expert representatives of the major approaches to Christian spiritual direction. All chapters follow a common framework, addressing such matters as each tradition’s definition and understanding of spiritual direction, the process of authentic transformation, the role of the spiritual director, indicators of mature spirituality and other aspects of the spiritual direction process. Chapters also provide psychological and clinical insight into how spiritual direction is similar to, different from and can be integrated with psychotherapy and pastoral counseling to help others experience spiritual transformation and union with God.
