Meet the Author

Robert J. Wicks strives to open people who are used to giving to the miracle of receiving. He accomplishes this goal by marrying sound psychology and basic spiritual truths that set the stage for profound personal transformation. A popular presenter at workshops and conventions, Wicks is especially appealing to people in the helping professions—physicians, teachers, psychologists, and ministers—assisting them to integrate the psychological and the spiritual so they can extend their emotional flames to others without burning out in the process. He has worked around the globe—from the psychological debriefing of relief workers evacuated to the United States from Rwanda to conducting workshops in Cambodia for members of the international community assigned to help the Khmer people rebuild their nation. Additionally, he delivered presentations at Walter Reed Army Hospital to health care professionals involved in caring for Iraqi war veterans with amputations and severe head injuries. Wicks, a Queens, New York, native, received a master’s degree in clinical psychology in 1973 from St. John’s University and a doctorate in psychology from Philadelphia’s Hahnemann Medical College in 1977. In 1996, Pope John Paul II awarded Wicks a papal medal for his service to the Catholic Church. Wicks has written more than forty books. He serves as a professor of the graduate programs in pastoral counseling at Loyola College, Baltimore. Wicks and his wife Michaele have a grown daughter. They live in suburban Baltimore, Maryland.

    An update of this treasure

    I think I need to order this newer edition of what has been a classic in my spiritual library. The sections on friends and friendship have been especially meaningful in my own life as over the years I have grown to appreciate friends along my spiritual journey more and more. My well-marked copy of this book was published in 1992; I see now there is a 2007 update.
