Saint Paul as Spiritual Director: An Analysis of the Concept of the Imitation of Paul with Implications and Applications to the Practice of Spiritual Direction
Copan, Victor A.

Milton Keynes, UK: Paternoster, 2007 pp. xxvi + 296. Ä19.99

Series Information

Description: In recent years much has been written on spiritual direction. However, confusion and at times outright contradiction exists between the aims and methodologies of various models of Christian spiritual direction. In order to develop solid criteria for evaluating and critiquing these models it is necessary to root the practice of spiritual direction in the biblical record. The intention of this study is to provide such biblical moorings by examining the Apostle Paul as a case study in his function as a spiritual director?with respect to his aims and praxis of spiritually forming the members of the congregations he founded.
