Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Therapist, spiritual director, theologian, and teacher, Fischer explores ways that new approaches to direction can heal and empower women, bridging the gap between inchoate experiences and traditional meanings assigned by men. Some topics here are standard (paradigms of growth, images of God, prayer styles), while others deal with women's special concerns (issues of power, anger, and sexist violence), but all are seen through a nonradical feminist lens. Testimonies of Fischer's directees, biblical stories, and reflective prayer exercises enrich this thoughtful work.-- EC
