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 pay 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.
