Overview

Drawing on the classis retreat model, The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius,Moment by Moment offers a new and inviting way to find God in our often busy and complex lives. In a series of 32 "Moments", the text guides the reader with thought-provoking questions, practical suggestions, and excerpts carefully chosen from scripture and The Spiritual Exercises. Its simple format can be used by an individual or by groups in a number of ways: as a way of making the Spiritual Exercises in daily life, as a guide for daily prayer, as a companion for reflection, or as suggested themes for a retreat.

Drawing upon their extensive experience as spiritual directors, the authors write in their introduction, "This book offers a way to reflect and sift through one's multiple life experiences and to discover in them the leading thread of God's longing and desire to make us a holy people who are given in service to others."

Anyone seeking spiritual growth will discover that Moment by Moment offers wise direction and fosters a holistic spirituality firmly rooted in the daily experience of God in one's life.

    Simply the best

    As I savor Moment 18 I'm moved to tell all who may be inclined to investigate books/tapes/etc. on spiritual growth, this is without doubt the best I've used and I've passed this way many times before.
