Product Description

For five centuries, Ignatius Loyola's Spiritual Exercises have been leading Christians to deeper faith. Now, Wakefield brings the richness of this enduring text to contemporary Protestants. Sacred Listening adapts Ignatius' original month-long spiritual retreat into a guide that allows you to weave prayer and contemplation of Scripture into your daily schedule. As you pray, write in a journal, study Scripture, and share your experiences, you'll discover Christ in new ways and be transformed by the power of a time-honored tradition that continues to speak to us today.

Publisher's Description

A profound call to Christian discipleship. An intensive course in Christian faith. A creative freedom to serve God that is deeply grounded in Scripture. These are ways to describe Sacred Listening, James L. Wakefield's adaptation of the classic Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius Loyola.

Central to the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), the Spiritual Exercises is a manual used to direct a month-long spiritual retreat. Now adapting these time-honored Exercises specifically for Protestant Christians, James L. Wakefield encourages readers to integrate their secular goals with their religious beliefs and helps them reflect on the life of Jesus as a model for their own discipleship.

Combining scholarship with classic forms of spirituality, Sacred Listening will interest church leaders and lay Christians who want to deepen their faith.

Author Bio

James L. Wakefield (M.Div., Denver Seminary; M.Th., Bethel Seminary; Ph.D., Marquette University) is associate professor of biblical and spiritual theology at Salt Lake Theological Seminary in Salt Lake City, Utah. He is associate pastor at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Sandy, Utah, and the author of Jürgen Moltmann: A Research Bibliography.

Library Journal

The last ten years have seen a substantial revival of popular interest in some rather antiquated methods of spiritual discipline, including the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. Lutheran pastor Wakefield has discovered in this Counter-Reformation Catholic's work "a creative freedom to serve God that is deeply grounded in Scripture." Less a reinvention of the Exercises than an eminently practical, hands-on, day-by-day guide to their application, Sacred Listening should prove very useful to individuals and church groups attempting to understand and implement Ignatius's disciplines.
