What did you love best about The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything?
I bought this book in the Laguardia Airport book store. It resonated with me on my spiritual life, how to pray and my relationship with God. I am not Catholic so I was not prepared for the practical Christian spirituality that James Martin conveys in this book.
I was headed in the wrong direction, away from God and this book literally turned me around. I am in a much better place and on a better path because of the impact this book had on my life.
I bought the audio book to re-listen to it for more insights I may have missed on the 1st reading.
The title of the book is absolutely true.

Would you listen to The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything again? Why?
Absolutely. It is so centering to hear Fr. Jim read this wonderful book. I use it before sleep, in the car, while working on other projects. It helps me practice Ignatian Spirituality daily.
What did you like best about this story?
Every section is helpful in it's own way, but what I find myself returning to again and again, are the sections on poverty, chastity and obedience. That doesn't sound glamorous on the surface, but revisiting these values in a new form is so liberating.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Oh, yes.... but you can't. It must be savored, a little at a time!
Any additional comments?
This book will change your life!

...through the eyes of a Jesuit priest who has a very chatty style of writing. It made me think and occasionally laugh reminding me that I should do the spiritual exercises again.

I really enjoyed this insight into jesuit spirituality and St Ignatius's life and teaching. Much food for thought here.
