“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’!”

“An excellent, widely researched, and deeply understanding introduction to the spiritual life for contemporary seekers and their spiritual guides.”

“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."
