The spiritual ally occupies its space, though you and your allies can move through it, since it is your ally. The spiritual ally threatens adjacent squares and can flank and make attacks of opportunity as if it were a normal creature. The spiritual ally carries a single weapon, one favored by your deity (as for spiritual weapon), which has the same threat range and critical modifiers as a real weapon of its form. The spiritual ally uses your base attack bonus (gaining extra attacks if your base attack bonus is high enough) plus your Wisdom bonus when it makes a melee attack.

Use this book in a Master's program in spiritual counseling. Great book with lots of insight on dealing with different situtions. The book was mandatory for my class; however, I am glad it is now a part of my collection of books.
Outstanding work. Author tells it like it is, clearly and concisely.
great
This fairly short book (120 pages) is packed with accessible information about anger and the Christian's response to their own anger. Rather than making a blanket statement that anger is wrong, Andrew Lester shows why it is important (as a reaction to a perceived threat), how we can use it, with examples of both Jesus and God being angry in the Bible, as well as offering processes to deal with anger creatively. I found the insight into what causes anger to be fascinating and very helpful in understanding myself and others. There are lots of examples from everyday lives which help to illustrate his points and overall the book is a very worthwhile read. Furthermore, despite being an American book he gives few examples that don't work in British culture and writes in a tolerant and engaging style which works well over here.
This book considers anger as the result of some threat, and a mechanism of how to cope with the threat.
