This is a textbook for leaders in congregations who want to help individuals and the whole congregation grow spiritually. It comes out of my failure to impose trendy spiritual practices in the congregations I've served, and my experience in listening to what God is doing in the congregation as a whole, in individuals, and in me. The material has been used in congregations and with groups of clergy, so that it is all very practical. There are charts that help me get clear about relationships. I teach at several seminaries and do individual spiritual direction with pastors.

Of all the books I have read so far on spiritual formation, I have probably appreciated Ackerman's the most. He was incredibly thoughtful in putting together his information, acknowledging that not all congregations are the same, and suggesting the different ways to work with different types of congregations. I still think at times his assessments and approaches are just a little too formulaic, but this remains one of the best resources available for the spiritual formation of congregations.

I have noticed that the Alban Institute consistently puts out quality books...that's nice.

I recommend this book by Ackerman. It contains solid theology and resonates with experience in the field. Furthermore the writing is solid.
