Peter Madsen Gubi, PhD, is a Moravian and holds Masters degrees in Education, Counselling and Applied Theology.

...relevant not only to counsellors but to anyone who offers care within a pastoral setting and prays with people. -- The Christian Parapsychologist

Gubi is not just giving his own opinion, but has done a tremendous amount of research on the subject. He defines spirituality (all spirituality, not just Christian.) and he reflects on the psychological impact of prayer and its ethical use.It is a very comprehensive book for those who want, like Gubi, to introduce spirituality and prayer into mainstream counselling and psychotherapy practice as an accepted intervention with the benefits and dangers that any intervention poses. And it is an encouragement for all who have been using prayer all along, but felt rather alone in it and not sure about sharing this, even with their supervisors.

-- Accord Magazine -

His well-written contribution from the field of psychotherapy and counselling features an extensive literature review. -- Nursing Standard
Gubi does a fine job of consolidating and outlining literature relevant to the discussion concerning the use of prayer within the context of therapy. -- Psycritiques
