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.

An absolutely terrific book. Fr. Martin is funny, practical and inspiring. Not just for Jesuits... not just for Christians... fine thoughts here on the art of living in kindness and connection.

I went into this book expecting humor at every turn. Instead, what I got was an informative and insightful guide to spirituality with stories of saints, as well as personal stories from the author. And yes, there was some humor, but it wasn't the focus of the book (I believe my expectations of humor...

I started reading this at roughly the same time as The Sparrow. What I learned here shed an interesting light on that book, which didn't fare well by comparison. I learned more of Jesuits and Ignatian spirituality here than I did at my Jesuit college - but then I had other focuses at the time.This b...

At first, I had a really rough time with this book. Yes, I know it is written by a Jesuit priest, but it was a bit to preachy for my liking. After about 75 pages though, I became fascinated by the book and it appeared to relax some. I have always been fascinated by Jesuits and the book gave an excel...
