Spiritual Direction: A Beginner's Guide by Fr. Richard Malloy, SJ
In a lively and personal style rich with stories and personal reflection, Fr. Richard Malloy, SJ, introduces readers to the art and practice of Spiritual Direction in the Jesuit tradition. Responding to the tone and texture of millennials’ questions and concerns, his book emphasizes spiritual direction as a relationship with God that leads to both personal and social transformation.
Drawing on insights from a wide range of authors who write on prayer and the spiritual life, Fr. Malloy shows how the human desire for God unites with our aspirations for a world that reflects God’s peace and justice. He discusses Ignatian tradition and practices, such as the examen and silent retreats, and shows how to integrate prayer and reflection into everyday life.
Useful for courses on spirituality and pastoral theology,
Spiritual Direction: A Beginner’s Guide is enriching reading for those seeking spiritual growth as well as those already engaged in spiritual direction.
