Still Listening: New Horizons in Spiritual Direction

'“To the extent that crises often set people off on the spiritual journey, such conversations can be pastorally challenging. A good resource for that challenge is Still Listening. The writing is uniformly excellent. Spiritual direction may be a ministry of kindly silence in many regards, but Norvene Vest has brought together spiritual directors of uncommon verbal skill. Her books offers fascinating insight into what pastoral work actually demands. This is a richly useful book.” —Anne Kelsey, Saint James’ Episcopal Church, Fremont, CA, Anglican Theological Review   “Engaging, thought-provoking . . . Still Listening is very highly recommended reading for both the pastoral community and the non-specialist general reader with an interest in spiritual approaches to life issues, circumstance, and challenges.” —The Midwest Book Review, Carol’s Bookshelf   “Through her invitation to twelve other experienced spiritual directors ‘to share their thoughts on cutting-edge issues in the field,’ Norvene Vest has offered us a great gift. . . . Breaks some new, fresh ground in this ancient field, as well as plows older rich soil in creative ways . . . Some chapters would be excellent for parish pastors, some for training programs, some I could use in an introductory course in spiritual direction.” —Barbara B. Troxell, Presence  '
