Kirk’s Book of the Week(ish): Spiritual Direction by Martin Thornton

Spiritual-Direction-coverMy favorite writer (or at least one of them), Martin Thornton, strikes again – this time offering a short introduction to the practice of spiritual direction.  Intended mainly for up-and-coming spiritual directors, it gives loads of insight into the role of spiritual direction in the life of faith, the nature of the relationship between director and client, and how a healthy process of direction unfolds.

Thornton was one of the great historians of spiritual formation and a highly respected abbot in the Church of England.  The book is a humorous and incredibly insightful read.  (It has lots of helpful stuff on attrait, btw. If that sweetens the deal!)
