Abba, Give Me A Word: The Path Of Spiritual Direction
ith a style and warmth of presentation that will remind readers of Henri Nouwen's most popular work, Abba Give Me a Word interweaves the author's personal stories of struggle—and transformation—with reflections on the history and purpose of spiritual direction. The result is a wise introduction to an ancient art and practice of "soul care"—directed at Christians of all backgrounds.
"This is a guide for those eager for a serious yet joyful journey from isolation to communion. It is about companionship on the greatest journey anyone can undertake. It is about kindness in the old sense of the word." -Alan Jones - Dean Emeritus of Grace Cathedral, San Francisco, and the author of Soul Making
