Mulholland helps Christians new and old to understand that we become like Christ gradually, not instantly. Not every personality is suited to an early morning quiet time, so Mulhollnad faces different personality types to express their piety differently. He reviews the classical spiritual disciplines and demonstrates the importance of undertaking our spiritual journey with (and for the sake of) others. This road map for spiritual formation is profoundly biblical and down to earth-in the finest tradition of spiritual literature, it is a vital help to Christians at any stage of the journey.

I use this book for teaching a class on Spiritual Formation. It's one of the best books that allows people to understand the complexity of others. Excellent!

Review 2 for Invitation to a Journey: A Road Map for Spiritual Formation

An excellent book relating our spiritual growth to our personality type and the spiritual disciplines. I was challenged by Mulholland's idea that the focus of our spiritual disciplines should not be in the area of our strengths but in the "shadow" side of our personality. I have read several books on spiritual formation and this is one of the best.
