In this volume several seminary theologians explore the relationship between teaching theology and the essential ministry of spiritual direction as it is practiced in the seminary. These essays deepen the conversation that was begun in the first volume of this series, Seminary Theology: Teaching in a Competitive Way (2010). In 2006 the U.S. Bishops invited seminary personnel to consider how they can establish spirituality as the heart of teaching theology in seminary formation [The Program of Priestly Formation (5th. ed.)]. This IPF Publications’ series of books is a response to this call by the US Bishops. In generating this series IPF hopes to serve the Bishops in their vision that spirituality is the core of seminary formation.
