Reviews - What do our customers think?
Nicely done but verbose  Sep 29, 2002
There's no major flaw with this book, it is just that she should have cut some the writing by one-third. Spiritual direction is one of those trendy things in spirituality right now that has actually been around a very long time. This is a good book about it with solid information. I found many of the the writing styles a little distracting, some of it seems like the writers are a little impressed with themselves.
 
Thought-provoking essays by seasoned spiritual directors  May 22, 2001
Norvene Vest is an experienced spiritual director, author, workshop leader, Episcopal laywoman, oblate of a Roman Catholic monastery, and graduate of a Protestant seminary, who is especially known for her books on Benedictine spirituality for the common life. In Still Listening: New Horizons In Spiritual Direction, Vest dons the role of editor to compile engaging, thought-provoking essays by seasoned spiritual directors from a variety of faith traditions to address issues of concern on the subjects of abused persons, the poor, church drop-outs, homosexualality, the congregational setting, the corporate arena, general issues, the addicted, the dying, the sue of art in spiritual directions, and social justice. Still Listening is very highly recommend reading for both the pastoral community and the non-specialist general reader with an interest in spiritual approaches to life issues, circumstances, and challenges.
