Rob Marsh SJ, Imagination, Discernment and Spiritual Direction

(Image of Book)
Rob Marsh SJ has been a leading light in the ministry of the Spiritual Exercises over the past few decades. His subtle insights have not only been a mainstay of training courses for spiritual directors, but have enlightened the lives of many others who have come into contact with his work. This collection of essays brings together some of his most insightful writings to explain how the techniques of spiritual conversation, discernment and direction can be used to bring people into an encounter with God. Written with humour, accessibility and cultural awareness, the essays outline a much needed world view in which the personhood of God takes its rightful place in our awareness. All those who wish to develop the skill of discernment, especially Spiritual Directors and those who have made the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola, will find in this book a treasure trove of spiritual insight.
Philip Harrison SJ

From the Foreword

The essays gathered here all, in their different ways, issue an invitation: to stand still, and vulnerable, in that place where the work of the Spirit of God can be recognised and a response given.
