Synopses & Reviews
Merton, whose own tortuous path to spiritual maturity is well known, here offers the knowledge gained during that experience. He discusses the meaning and purpose of spiritual direction, and how to profit from that direction.
This booklet contains revised and expanded versions of the material on spiritual direction and meditation which appeared, in installments, in the magazine 'Sponsa Regis'.
