Inhaltsangabe: An approach to the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius As more and more people begin to reclaim their spiritual heritage, longoverlooked traditions resurface, offering seekers new ways to rekindle their spiritual selves. The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola is such a tradition, and its recovery in the church has sparked the interest of many believers?religious and laypeople alike.
In light of this resurgence, Fr. William A. Barry, a director of the Spiritual Exercises for more than thirty years, offers Letting God Come Close, a guide that shows spiritual directors how to effectively and creatively help individuals meet the living God through the Exercises. Using clear, down-to-earth examples from his own experience, Fr. Barry hopes to instill in the director the trust, confidence, and skills needed to help retreatants approach God. ?Spiritual directors will find a gold mine here of help in understanding and giving the Exercises.?
?George Aschenbrenner, S.J., director, Jesuit Center for Spiritual Growth ?For over thirty years Barry has listened attentively for the ways God deals directly with God?s people through the Spiritual Exercises. God?s voice comes through and Barry helps directors pay attention.?
?George R. Murphy, S.J., adjunct lecturer in spirituality at the Jesuit School of Theology in Berkeley
Vom Verlag: In this dynamic guide, Father Barry explains different methods directors can encourage their retreatants to use during the Exercises, such as imaginative prayer and "touchstone experiences" that help individuals access higher levels of spiritual contemplation. Using well-chosen examples from the Bible, religious literature, and from psychological and religious professionals, Barry reveals the modern-day relevance of these centuries-old exercises. His insights will pave the way for even further expansion of this increasingly popular and enlightening practice.
