Con-Versing With God: Poetry for Pastoral Counseling
"God will have compassion according to the abundance of steadfast love; for God does not willingly afflict or grieve anyone." Lamentations 3:32.
"I find that people who are walking a spiritual path relate well to poetry and metaphor. A particular poem can be used as a starter for individual or group discussions. It can also be used to gently jump start an individual to write his/her own poetry, which can be very self-revelatory." — From the Introduction to Con-Versing With God.
Con-Versing with God is the latest book in Cynthia Blomquist Gustavson's series of "In-Versing Your Life" workbooks, helpful for both therapists and self-help. This book deals with essentially every issue that arises in spiritual therapy, and gives the therapist/patient countless tools for dealing with life issues, faith issues, relationships, death, depression, and much more! This is a must-have for every spiritual counselor, pastor, pastoral counselor, or other therapist of faith.
