About-

This book explores the relationship between personal spirituality and pastoral ministry, extolling the pastor's primary role as spiritual instructor to the parish. Leech shares with pastors and spiritual directors the important insights that counseling and psychotherapy lend to the process of spiritual direction. Leech amkes concrete his advice in spiritual formation by holding up the lives of four parish priests who were a great influence on his own spiritual development, and of whom the Church Times writes, "All were gospel radicals."
