In preparation for our new theme starting next week – What Does Your Soul Long To Do? I have updated our reading list on spiritual direction, an essential part of preparing our souls for the journey ahead. A big thank you to my Facebook friends who helped revise this list, adding new suggestions to the list that we first published in 2014.

Once again I am indebted to Terry Clees who provided me with the bibliography for her dissertation and to so many others who contributed. I asked for out of the box suggestions and appreciate the rich variety of these – from books and websites on the traditional spiritual direction to children’s books, liberation theologians and postmodern thinkers. As you can imagine this is not a comprehensive list but hopefully it gives all of us a place to start, no matter what our faith perspective.

Books - Books - List - Review - Book

I have not personally read all these books, but may go broke acquiring the new books it has added to my reading list. Where possible I have also included a review of the book especially if it is not one that I am familiar with. If you know have reviewed one of these books or have others to add to the list please leave a comment below. Enjoy – we are always working to improve these lists!
