Sintesi dell'editore

The Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius Loyola has been one of the greatest classics of Western spirituality for more than 400 years. Whether you are discovering it for the first time or you are an expert seeking fresh insight into the exercises, you will profit from this unique new series. Your guide is Fr. Brian McDermott, SJ, former academic dean of the Weston Jesuit School of Theology. A spiritual director for 35 years, he has been Jesuit tertian director for the Maryland and New York Jesuit provinces since 1996.

The exercises have guided countless Jesuits, other religious people, and laypeople into a profound experience of God as revealed in Jesus Christ. It gained immeasurable success by staying close to the life of Christ, as revealed in the Gospels, and inviting believers to accompany Jesus in his being born, his ministry, his passion and death, and his resurrection.

These 18 lectures will introduce you to the powerful dynamics of this timeless classic. Drawing on his own experience of directing the exercises, Fr. McDermott will guide you into the riches of this text with expert commentaries and relevant contemporary theology.

Ignatius' imagination was orderly and vibrant. Because of his conviction that believers are best able to grow in their spiritual lives through a combination of structure and flexibility, he developed his exercises to offer both strengths. You'll explore the series of progressive and cumulative prayer exercises, through which the believer experiences all the most important "moments" of the Christian journey.

Not what I expected

I expected to actually do the spiritual exercises thought this book. Instead this is just a lecture on how to prepare yourself to do them. It doesn't even tell you what they are. Sadly disappointed. It would have been much better if it walked you through them

Interesting Course

I found this course very interesting. I read about this exercise in a book and wanted to know more about it. I found this course and it told me everything I wanted to know.

helpful

I have been studying Ignatian Spiritual direction as part of a program to become a spiritual director. I listened to this between semesters to get another take on Ignatius and it was helpful. Obviously there will be some overlap when you listen to multiple people present a single subject, but the differences in emphasis and perspective did help to bring to light some things that my professors had not covered. I think I will pick this up again this summer and revisit it again.

what an amazing and enriching book. loved it !

Perfect for advent, but good anytime. This book explains Ignatius of Loyolas spiritual exercises in a beautiful pragmatic and engaging way. Whoever had this guy as a confessor was very lucky. if you really want to understand the day to day practice of good Catholic spirituality this is your book.
