dc.description.abstractThis dissertation is a practical theological study of the NewWay model of spiritual direction used to train spiritual directors at the evangelical-affiliated Urban Sanctuary Retreat Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The NewWay model focuses on identifying underlying, internal relational difficulties in an effort to transform persons' interior world so that their ruling passions increasingly resembles the interior world of Jesus. However, when compared to the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola, the NewWay model fails to provide insights on fostering an outward, engaged spirituality. This project makes the proposal that Urban Sanctuary appropriate evangelical theologian Stanley Grenz's "eschatology as orienting motif" as a means to augment the theological categories of the NewWay model in the training of spiritual directors.en_US
