Format: Paperback
"The Classics of Western Spirituality" from Paulist Press has been dedicated, over the last twenty years, to producing excellent translations, and this is no exception. The compliation includes a detailed Introduction, the Autobiography, the Spiritual Excerices, and fragments of the Constitutions and the Spiritual Diary. Though it would have benefited from the inclusion of the Formula - an essential document in its own right - this volume provides intelligent translations and crtical explorations into the sometimes-confusing meaning of Ignatius' prose. The selections from the Diary are especially recommended, as they comprise - to my knowledge - the only fragments translated into English, and are thoughtfully printed so as to give the reader a feel for the outlay of the work, scribbled in Ignatius' journal. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
An enlightening book about St. Ignatius of Loyola... It has an informative introduction and autobiography about his life. The second half of the book is a listing and description of his spiritual exercises.

I have heard so much about St. Ignatius from my spiritual director so I was curious about him, his life and spiritual exercises. This book gives a good summary.

It is written in an academic and fairly difficult fashion. It is not easy reading, although it is inspirational.

This book is superlative in every possible manner. The editors (Classics of Western Spirituality) are always true to form, never changing the essence of the spiritual writer concerned. I have not finished reading this book, but have only started. Yet I know one thing for sure: if you are serious about advancing in your faith in the Christian religion, you will find this book an invaluable companion in your endevour. It receives the 5 stars because it contains stuff that will redirect your life in the most unforseen ways.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius give a 4 step structure to the experience of Mystic Union, that is valid for all spiritual systems. Evelyn Underhill, Oxford's 1st Woman Chair of Spirituality, uses these 4 stages in her classis work "Mysticism" to great effect. I keep this simple volume of Ignatius on my desk at all times, it is right here in front of me as I write this. The key to all muystic experience, in classic Greek terms, is from "purgation" (Via Purgativa, cleansing from all selfishness and negative judgments), sacred image or via kataphatica, no image or via apophatica, and only then "union." Must read, a book useful for all faiths.
