"The Society of Jesus", members of which are known as Jesuits, was founded by St Ignatius of Loyola in 1540. It remains to this day one of the largest, most widespread and influential religious orders within the Roman Catholic Church. It has, however, attracted much ill-informed speculation, based on the suspicion that it is a "Church within a Church". This book attempts to put the record straight. It looks at the contribution of modern Jesuits to education, literature, academic life and spirituality. It is based on a great many interviews with members and former members all over the world.
