Grounded and open, this eminently practical and incarnational guide draws on the depths of our ancient tradition with a post-modern willingness to engage all of being---soul, spirit, and body, as well as mind. A most useful introduction to spiritual direction and its current practice in the Anglican tradition. Katharine Jefferts Schori, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church
In this comprehensive and accessible book, Peter Ball reminds us of the distinctive and significant contributions of the Anglican tradition to the ministry of spiritual direction. His work invites the reader to further exploration of the great figures and movements of past centuries, too often overlooked but profoundly relevant to the cure of souls. Further, his thoughtful examination of the work of Anglican spiritual directors throughout the world today offers fresh insight into this rich tradition. Margaret Guenther, author of Holy Listening: The Art of Spiritual Direction and At Home in the World: A Rule of Life for the Rest of Us
This fascinating and instructive overview reminds us of the humane and non-violent experience of the classic Anglican experience of Spirituality and its subsequent tradition of spiritual guidance. Just as Peter Ball shows just how much the Anglican experience is rooted in Scripture and history as well as communal and personal prayer and experience, so each chapter offers the chance to ground and personalise the topic through question and reflection. The tensions between the gifted amateur and the professional, true for many though not all traditions of spiritual guidance today, are laid bare and the reader is left free to make their own minds up about this as about other matters, such as future developments and the ways forward over different areas of strength and weakness. Andrew Walker, director of the London Centre for Spirituality
