Part 1 Preface by Alan Jones
Chapter 2 Welcoming the Stranger
Chapter 3 Good Teachers
Chapter 4 Midwife to the Soul
Chapter 5 Women and Spiritual Direction
Even apart from its value as a book on the process of spiritual direction, Holy Listening is a delightful commentary on every Christian's spiritual journey.
— Review For Religious
This excellent and wise book continues an important trend as the spiritual traditions of classical Christianity and other religions are translated into the idioms and situations of the modern world. This work is useful for those who are spiritual directors, directees, or those interested in issues related to spiritual growth. … I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is easy to read yet filled with insight. Perhaps the best recommendation I can give it is to say that it has helped me in my own spiritual pilgrimage.
— Rev. Dr. Gerald A. Butler; Congregations
Because the author's sincerity and authenticity resound from every page, … this work is bound to prove insightful and revelatory to the inexperienced as well as the experienced. It is earthy and practical, sensitive and contemplative.
