Seeking Spiritual Direction: How to Grow the Divine Life Within

Seeking Spiritual Direction: How to Grow the Divine Life Within

by Thomas Dubay, S.M. (1993)

Of this there is no doubt: this book is written by an expert in the subject. That makes it money and time well spent immediately.

The vast majority of the book (the final two-thirds) is written in a question and answer format, which works surprisingly well.  At times the back and forth seems contrived and stiff, but luckily that is not pervasive. On occasion, the flow seems so natural that maybe it is indeed a real interview or conversation.

This work may be the most practical spiritual book I have read. It truly is a no nonsense book.  The advice on how to find and discern a suitable spiritual director is invaluable. The pitfalls Fr. Dubay makes you aware of are things that are better not learned by experience if you can avoid it.
