We look at the world-and at God-in drastically different ways than our ancestors did, and yet the wisdom of a sixteenth-century Catholic saint perfectly suits our doubtful, antiauthoritarian, pluralistic age.

I've been using this book to guide me in the spiritual exercises. The author does an excellent job of making the Ignatian exercises accessible (without watering them down so as to make them ineffective) to modern Christians who seriously want to grow and strengthen their faith.

Good 'manual' for applying Ignatian Principles in everyday life. Contemplative and constructive.
