In 'Spiritual Connections: The Journey of Discipleship and Christian Values', psychologist-priest Brian P. Hall shares his own discernment of God's will in order to instruct others about their own personal discernment of Jesus' call to discipleship. In easily read, though highly focused form, he instructs the reader on practical skills basic to making faith, hope, and love vital. Here is a map of the landscape of discipleship as mediated by the values which energize our lives. The thoughtful reader will come away with a deeper sense of his or her own values, how these reflect and express one's personal relationship with Jesus, and from an empirical research point of view, how elegantly these values make sense of our being called forth into all that God intend us to become. -- James B. Ashbrook author of 'Minding the Soul: Pastoral Counseling As Remembering' Dr. Brian P. Hall is Professor Emeritus of Pastoral Counseling at Santa Clara University and an ordained Episcopal priest. He is also chairman of Values Technology, an organization committed to training religious and corporate leaders in values theory and its application in order to bring about changes that result in a more caring, interdependent society worldwide.
