In a day when psychological counseling sometimes passes as `spiritual direction', this book reminds us that early Christians--like Eastern Christians still today--were convinced that only someone with long and deep experience in prayer and discipline can dare to lead others along the way to God.

. . . The basic study on spiritual fatherhood.
Bishop Kallistos Ware
