About-

Spiritual direction is a particular way of walking the path of spiritual discovery in close company with another person. The Reluctant Spiritual Director speaks to both the prospective spiritual director, uncertain of his or her call, and the prospective directee, uncertain of the benefits. This book answers the most basic questions about spiritual direction: What is it? How does it work? Who does it? Would spiritual direction help me? Am I being called into this ministry myself? Though spiritual direction is an ancient Christian spiritual practice it has only recently been rediscovered by mainstream Christianity because of the widespread longing for "something more."

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Fleetwood Range furnishes sensible counsel for any newcomer to spiritual direction. Her lucid writing combines prudence with gentleness and aims at encouraging those who feel this special calling to persevere. The insights she provides about the inner life of women are particularly valuable."

--Virginia Stem Owens
Author of several books including And the Trees Clapped Their Hands and Caring for Mother.
