Review

The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything becomes like a read-along spiritual director, someone to prompt you with questions, redirect your gaze and help you, Martin says, to discern where God might be speaking to you. --USA Today

The book is a remarkable achievement. Enlivened with Jesuit humor and touching personal anecdotes, it lends itself well to a wide audience -- to all who believe that spirituality is a fundamental human dimension and who wish to develop the spiritual dimension in their own lives. Martin deliberately casts his net as widely as possible, aiming to reach not only the devout but also those who believe in God without ties to institutions of worship, those on the way back to a community of faith, as well seekers, doubters and the puzzled.... A fundamental lesson of Martin's book is that a mature spirituality is within everyone's grasp.... The spirituality of The Jesuit Guide is without a doubt Christian in a manifestly Jesuit key. To read the guide is to be on an enlightening Jesuit retreat. Christians and those who want to be Christian, but perhaps not yet, will find the book most appealing... Martin comes across not so much as the consummately wise the retreat director but as a fellow retreatant who gladly offers what he has learned from his own experiences and from the wisdom of his Jesuit spiritual directors. The frequent autobiographical references provide a personal touch that establishes a powerful bond with readers.... Readers receive a sound training and Ignatian spirituality. They learn to find God in and to pray out of their experiences, thoughts and desires. Martin is a compelling teacher... The Jesuit Guide bestows a double gift. Not simply an accessible introduction to Jesuit spirituality, it also introduces us to cloud of Jesuit witnesses: Saints, spiritual writers, psychologists and other seers, who have inspired Martin and whom he repeatedly invokes the purposes of illustration and libration. Readers may be equally inspired. --The Tablet

An excellent introduction to Jesuit spirituality for a general reader.... Martin's writing is accessible, comprehensive, and often humorous. --Commonweal

Writing beautifully, and with frequent touches of humor, James Martin, SJ, shows us what he's learned in religious life, and in the process offers us a rich spiritual feast. --U.S. Catholic (Editor's Top Pick of the Month)

From the Back Cover

St. Ignatius Loyola (1491-1556), the founder of the Society of Jesus (aka the Jesuits), was known for his practical spirituality. The "way of Ignatius" has helped millions of people--from the doubtful seeker to the devout believer--find freedom, make friends, live simply, work sensibly, fall in love, experience joy, and enter into a relationship with God.

The Ignatian goal of "finding God in all things" eans that every part of our lives can lead us to God. The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything shows us how this is possible, with user-friendly examples, humorous stories and anecdotes from the heroic and inspiring lives of Jesuit saints and average priests and brothers, as well as examples from Martin's twenty years as a Jesuit. The traditional wisdom that Jesuits use to help other people in their daily lives is easily applied, but not often explained well to the general public. The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything translates these insights of St. Ignatius for a modern audience and reveals how we can find God--and how God can find us--in the real world of work, love, suffering, decisions, prayer, and friendship.
