"All of us have secrets; some of the secrets are secret sins. Not all of them get confessed. But an unconfessed secret sin is a major impediment to the health of the soul and a life of maturity in Christ. Confession has always been a major concern in the church of Jesus Christ. Aaron Stern draws on the immediacies of a richly textured pastoral practice and explores in detail what is actually involved in carrying it out. A major contribution to both Christian maturity and pastoral competence in this American culture." - Eugene H. Peterson, Pastor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, B.C.
