‘To a theme which can be easily trivialized, Margaret Hebblethwaite brings sound knowledge of the Exercises, depth of insight into Ignatius’
vision and attitudes, and a keen sense of the needs of people today.’
The Way of St Ignatius is commended by Father Gerard Hughes.From the Back Cover:
The living tradition of prayer stemming from Ignatius, the sixteenth-century founder of the Jesuits, is still increasing in popularity among Christians of all denominations today. It leads us, not away from the world, but into the heart of the world where God can be found in all things.
Widely praised as one of the best introductions to the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius, this book combines sound practical advice on how to set about praying with an understanding of the deep mystery and beauty of prayer. ‘Ignatian spirituality is about discovering the unique person that each of us is, the individual ways in which each of us relates to God, and the unprescribable ways in which we are each called to do God's will.’
"… tackles the spiritual exercises in a forthright but sensitive way…an imaginative approach to a deeper understanding and love of God."
" This is an excellent, very readable and practical guide to the spiritual exercises of St Ignatius Loyola, showing clearly both their earthiness, sublimity, and relevance to every aspect of human life."
GERARD W HUGHES SJ
