Press Reviews

Spiritual Direction is one of those phrases that can seem both exclusive and mysterious so it was good to come across this phrase about it: ‘Spiritual Direction is for those who want to know God in their daily lives, whatever it involves and however mundane it may seem’. This sentence tells us that spiritual direction is for anyone not just an elite few.

This book demystifies spiritual direction reminding us that it has been part of the history of the church for generations. By rooting the practice firmly in the bible it combats any ideas of a vague new age spirituality and helps us to see it as a means of seeing how our story fits into God’s story.

If you are new to the whole idea of spiritual direction this book will give you a very useful introduction and hopefully encourage you to seek our someone to help you on your prayer journey. For those more familiar with the concept this is a good summary of the practice of direction.

The book challenges us to look for God in the everyday and make connections with the bible narrative in the hope that ‘we are able to recognise the Lod’s footprints and know the divine presence in every part of our lives.’
