Book description
Wendy Miller shows the deep biblical roots of Christian spiritual direction. Very much aware of the growing interest among church leaders in Christian spiritual direction, Miller helps readers see the ways in which Jesus guided His first disciples. She encourages readers to grow spiritually through contemplative reading of the gospels.

As readers explore the Gospels through Miller's guidance, they also gain insight into the spiritual lives of the disciples. Miller writes for example that readers will sense "the internal array of persons like Simon Peter, listening, carefully to his submerged story of fear and anxiety which Jesus notices and brings to light." In reading this gentle guide to the Gospels, readers will discover that Jesus notices and brings to light their own "submerged" stories. Most important, Miller helps readers recognize ways which God is in dialogue with disciples today. In addition to the Gospels, Miller includes stories of people that show the continued conversion that comes from Christ.

Miller offers a ground breaking book that demonstrates with clarity the ways in which spiritual direction is rooted in the Gospels and in the ministry of Jesus. Each of the thirteen chapters contains guidance for individuals and, beginning with chapter four, guidance for leaders.
