Editorial Reviews

Sister Funk offers the reader a helpful synthesis of the theology and practice of the Christian discernment tradition. Contemporary readers will be gently challenged to examine and reorient the way that they have allowed themselves to develop the discerning heart.&#39; Funk&#39;s story of her personal journey will be helpful to pastors, spiritual guides, and students of the Christian spiritual tradition.<BR /> Howard Gray, SJ, Georgetown University</DIV> <br /><br /><DIV>A particular value of Sr. Meg Funk&#39;s latest book is that she doesn&#39;t speak only in generalities about discernment but gives specific examples of how she and others have gone about making God-centered decisions. In addition, she provides a very helpful summary of the core teachings of classic spiritual writers like Bro. Lawrence of the Resurrection and St. Teresa of Avila.<BR /> James Wiseman, OSB, The Catholic University of America, Author of <I>Spirituality and Mysticism: A Global View</I></DIV> <br /><br /><DIV>This is a guide for grown-ups, a sophisticated, intricate look at discernment, in the broad sense as: &#34;the Holy Spirit at work in us."
Carol Schuck Scheiber, Horizon: Journal of the National Religious Vocation Conference
