Product Description

Stories are the connective tissue that sews the world together. In storytelling, the soul quickens and comes alive. In To Tell the Sacred Tale, Janet Ruffing describes the narrative process of spiritual direction in relationship to our contemporary contexts. She discusses the significance of narrative across cultures, and encourages spiritual directors to play close attention to the actual stories directees tell and suggests helpful responses directors can make to these sacred tales based on theory and illustrated with rich case material.

Janet K. Ruffing, RSM, is professor in the practice of spirituality and ministerial leadership at Yale Divinity School in New Haven, Connecticut, and has trained and supervised spiritual directors for twenty-five years.
