Editorial Reviews

Albert Haase
"In Journey with Jesus, Larry Warner has retrieved a five-hundred-year-old spiritual practice and revealed its practical significance for Christians of the twenty-first century. This insightful and reader-friendly presentation of the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola is the product of more than ten years' experience. To follow his wisdom and experience in Journey with Jesus is to discover the transforming power of the life of Jesus."
Dallas Willard
"The Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius is one of very few works produced by followers of Christ that reliably guides those who have seriously put their confidence in Christ onto a path where what we Christians endlessly talk about becomes the reality of daily existence. This is because Ignatius guides the disciple into experience of the things we talk about. The reality stands out in the details of what is experienced. But for most, trying to take the Exercises straight is like trying to board the airplane when it is already a hundred feet off the ground. Larry Warner's Journey with Jesus effectively brings the Exercises within reach of any disciple of Jesus ready to work with grace to turn life in the kingdom of the heavens with Jesus into their actual existence."
Robert Mulholland
"This book needs a warning label: 'Caution—serious engagement with the practices, disciplines and techniques set forth in this book will be destructive to everything in your life that is not yet conformed to the image of Jesus.' Warner has provided an invaluable resource for any who desire to live in loving union with God and to live Christlike lives in the world. Here the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius have been made accessible to contemporary believers . . . in a manner that facilitates their use in any sincere desire to know God and live with Jesus."
John Coe
"I have witnessed over the past years numerous students using these exercises to open their personal life to Jesus at a deep emotional level and experience the meaning of the gospel and the Scripture from the inside out. This is spiritual reading of the Word in its most meaningful sense. The reader will particularly benefit from Warner's spiritual advice that comes from years of experience with others on the journey in praying over the life of Christ."
Jan Johnson
"Contained in these pages is an experience of a lifetime, guided by a seasoned master who knows the Spiritual Exercises so well that they're his second language. Drink deeply and enjoy this adventure with Jesus."
Kyle Strobel
"Larry Warner brings the Exercises alive by providing the guidance, expertise and wisdom necessary to navigate the Exercises well. In both the practical and spiritual aspects of this volume, Larry leads you . . . before a God who, in the work of Christ, shows that his love is truly enough."
Richard Peace
"Larry Warner has done us a great service by translating a complex sixteenth-century retreat manual (The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius) into a highly usable format that brings alive this spiritual treasure. Warner makes it possible for twenty-first-century people to engage in the Ignatian exercises that lead one into a living relationship with Jesus. I am impressed that he has been able to remain true to the original nature of the exercises even while recasting them into a contemporary context. This is not the first attempt at updating the Exercises . . . but it is, to my mind, the best such effort."
