Overview

The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius has transformed millions of lives and profoundly altered the course of Christian spirituality. It remains perhaps the most widely used and influential guide for personal retreats. Drawing on decades of experience as a spiritual director, George A. Aschenbrenner, S.J., probes the inner dynamics of this spiritual classic and reveals the ingenious structure of this powerful method of spiritual growth. Fr. Aschenbrenner contends that our experience of the Spiritual Exercises will be richer if we have a solid grasp of their logic and direction. He offers straightforward commentary on the Exercises, along with the passionate conviction that a knowledgeable engagement with them will open our hearts to God and to generously serving others.
