Abba, Give Me a Word, by L. Roger Owens

As a young Methodist pastor, Owens had the good fortune of finding Larry, a retired Baptist pastor, who became his spiritual director. What sets this book apart from a good number of other books on the subject is its focus on how to receive spiritual direction. Making a home in the house that is God’s love is a motif running throughout the book.
