  1. “Already recognized as an essential reference for both guides and those seeking guidance, this eminently readable work integrates into one coherent whole a wide variety of psychological and spiritual insights about spiritual formation. A book to reflect on, to ponder, to peruse more than once, and to consult frequently."
    --Book Nook
  2. “An excellent, widely researched, and deeply understanding introduction to the spiritual life for contemporary seekers and their spiritual guides.”
    --Library Journal
  3. “What is most helpful about Carolyn Gratton’s vision of spiritual guidance is that she places it in the context of all of life … a comprehensive vision that is integrative and practical...exciting and enabling. It will be of enormous help to all who aspire to become ‘wise fish’!”
