Publisher's Summary

St. Ignatius Loyola (1491-1556), the founder of the Society of Jesus (aka the Jesuits), was known for his practical spirituality. The "way of Ignatius" has helped millions of people - from the doubtful seeker to the devout believer - find freedom, make friends, live simply, work sensibly, fall in love, experience joy, and enter into a relationship with God.
The Ignatian goal of "finding God in all things" eans that every part of our lives can lead us to God. The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything shows us how this is possible, with user-friendly examples, humorous stories and anecdotes from the heroic and inspiring lives of Jesuit saints and average priests and brothers, as well as examples from Martin's twenty years as a Jesuit. The traditional wisdom that Jesuits use to help other people in their daily lives is easily applied, but not often explained well to the general public. The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything translates these insights of St. Ignatius for a modern audience and reveals how we can find God - and how God can find us - in the real world of work, love, suffering, decisions, prayer, and friendship.

Changed My Life

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.

My Favorite Book by My Favorite Author

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!

Comprehensive guide to Ignatiun Spirituality..

...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.

Very enlightening and accessible reflection

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