Rueben P. Job (1922–2015) was a retired bishop of the United Methodist Church and former World Editor of The Upper Room. A pioneer in spiritual formation for his denomination, he wrote numerous books on the spiritual life and developed several spiritual enrichment programs. Bishop Job and his friend Norman Shawchuck coauthored A Guide to Prayer for Ministers and Other Servants as a result of their own hunger for God and for a resource that could be their constant companion on the journey toward a deeper and more consistent relationship with God. This was the first in the four-volume Guide to Prayer series. A native of North Dakota, Rueben and his wife, Beverly, made their home in Nashville, Tennessee.

Norman Shawchuck (1935–2012) was a United Methodist pastor who received a special appointment that allowed him to teach, write, and consult. He was adjunct professor at numerous universiies and seminiaries, including McCormick Theological Seminary and Trinity Evangelical Divinitiy School. He also served as full-time professor at Vanguard University in Costa Mesa, California. The author of numerous books, Dr. Shawchuck coauthored with Rueben Job A Guide to Prayer for Ministers and Other Servants and other books in the "Guide to Prayer" series.

John S. Mogabgab, was the founding editor of Weavings: A Journal of the Christian Spiritual Life. From 1975 to 1980 John served as Henri Nouwen’s teaching, research, and editorial assistant at Yale Divinity School. John died August 8, 2014.
