Ignatius saw the Christian mission, and especially that of the Jesuit missionary order which he founded, as being to ┐set fire to the world,┐ igniting a love for Jesus in the hearts of all. Even today┐hundreds of years later┐the writings of Ignatius of Loyola, one of the most prolific writers of his time, continue to inspire Christians in their quest for a meaningful, holy life. This fascinating introduction to Ignatian spirituality draws from contemporary translations of original texts focusing on the practical mysticism of Ignatius of Loyola. Excerpts from The Spiritual Exercises, his autobiography, and his collected letters and instructions provide direct insights from Ignatius about the spiritual life in general, and also offer context from Ignatius┐s life and times. Substantive, facing-page commentary, presented in a lively and engaging style, illuminates Ignatius┐s perspectives on many key aspects of Christian spirituality: ┐ Sin and self-awareness ┐ Humility and obedience ┐ Trust in God ┐ Discernment ┐ Imitating Jesus and the saints ┐ Love and common good ┐ ┐ and more
