Product DescriptionRev. James Martin SJ is a Jesuit priest, editor of America magazine and the author of many books. The Jesuit Guide to Almost Everything A Spirituality for Real Life introduces the reader to St. Ignatius of Loyola, if an introduction is needed, and his practical way to live to have a meaningful and fulfilling spiritual life. St. Ignatius was the founder of the Society of Jesus, or the Jesuits, of which Pope Francis is a member. This way, lived by the members of the Society, has helped millions find joy, peace and freedom and to find God in their everyday lives. Rev. Martin uses the first chapter to explain exactly what the way of St. Ignatius entails and then in the following chapters proceeds to suggest to the reader how to apply this way to gain deeper insights into desires for life and how to achieve them.
Rev. Martin writes in an easy to understand manner often employing humor to make a point. The book has been described as a "read-along spiritual director", "a rich spiritual feast" and "a five-star, slam-dunk, can't miss tip of this year". A biography of St. Ignatius is included.
