Prayerful reading of the scriptures and helping to interpret readers' reactions (which can be revealing) are its basic methods. This book explains the 'nuts and bolts' of this key aspect of spiritual direction.

Thoughtful and practical guidance on being a prayer guide  Aug 8, 2008
The author is an Anglican priest serving in the Church in Wales who has recently embarked on the formation of a new religious order for women, the Sisters of the Good Shepherd (SGS), in company with other female clergy who feel called to the particular style of communal life which this Order embodies.

The Revd Sister Anita Woodwell brings to this book many years of experience in the guidance of people undertaking various kinds of Ignatian bible-based prayer, and you can sense on every page the voice of a practical, hands-on spiritual director who knows what works and what generally doesn't work in this intensely personal ministry of prayer guiding.

Sr. Anita deals primarily with the practices of Lectio Divina and Imaginative Contemplation within the overall framework of a typical Week of Guided Prayer, and she sets out remarkably clearly the personal and spiritual gifts and competencies which anyone who guides others through these disciplines needs to have. The book also provides a wide and stimulating selection of biblical texts which prayer guides might use for particular purposes, together with a series of anonymised personal case studies which demonstrate how a gifted prayer guide can listen to a participant's description of his/her prayer time, identify the core experience within than description, gently tease out an understanding of how God spoke through the experience, and lead the participant onwards to another fulfilling encounter in her/his next prayer time.

The book is further supported by a website from which additional resources, such as graphics, presentations and handouts can be obtained.

I came to this book as someone who has not participated in Ignatian spirituality and for whom the prayer experiences Sr. Anita describes are still only an academic interest rather than a life experience. However, I would suggest that there is much in this book for anyone who simply wishes to read widely about the purposes and methodologies of prayer as part of one's journey of faith.

The book is very readable and accessible, and it never loses its real-life, practical, human focus. I know I shall return to it time and again whenever in my own journey I may need to revisit the principles and practicalities of bible-based prayer - even if, perhaps, I may never take up the personal challenge to dive headlong into the full Ignatian experience.
