Publisher's Description

Relationships can unlock the deeper parts of us and direct us to authentic spiritual development.


The evangelical church specializes in some spiritual disciplines: systematic reading of Scripture, devotional reading, regular attendance at preaching-oriented worship services. Those things are all important in a believer s spiritual growth. But Christian psychologist Larry Crabb says what s missing is relationships.

Crabb focuses on the importance of relationships in personal spiritual formation, particularly the relationship with a spiritual director, who looks deeply into our lives and asks us piercing questions. That s the way to healing the hurt places in the soul, Crabb says. What does that kind of spiritual direction look like? What happens in the relationship? We ll explore that issue in this study.
