Publisher's Description

Its effects are often life changing. But what exactly is it, and why do so many people embrace it?

The most influential spiritual movement of the modern age is Ignatian spirituality, an approach to the spiritual life based on the insights of St. Ignatius of Loyola. Ignatian spirituality teaches an active attentiveness to God joined with a prompt responsiveness to God, who is ever active in people’s lives.

In What Is Ignatian Spirituality?,David L. Fleming, SJ, provides an authoritative yet highly accessible summary of the key elements of Ignatian spirituality, among which are contemplative prayer, discernment, and dynamic involvement in service and mission. In twenty concise chapters, Fr. Fleming explains how this centuries-old method of disciplined reflection on God’s work in the world can deepen our spiritual lives today and guide all the decisions we make.

Also available in Spanish! ¿Qué es la espiritualidad ignaciana?

David L. Fleming, SJ, is internationally known for his conferences, retreats, and writings on Ignatian spirituality, spiritual direction, and the spiritual life. He is the editor of the journal Review for Religious. His books include Draw Me into Your Friendship, Like the Lightning, and Prisms for a Christ-Life.

Editorial Reviews

"What Is Ignatian Spirituality? covers slightly different territory; it is also one of the shortest introductions to Ignatian spirituality I have ever read. The editor of Review for Religious and an experienced spiritual director, Fleming offers bite-size chapters on love, pilgrimage, prayer, work, discernment and sin, each highlighting an aspect of the spirituality of St. Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits. Fleming expertly weaves into his book, as through a tapestry, stories from the life of Ignatius and examples from his classic text, the Spiritual Exercises. Like Barry, much of Fleming’s writing not only explains but reveals: 'Imaginative prayer makes Jesus of the Gospels our Jesus.' This is one of those statements, common to both books, that makes you think at once, 'I’ve never thought of that!' and 'That’s exactly right!' Fleming’s is the perfect book to give to someone who asks his title question. How lucky we are to have these two experienced guides offering to lead us along the way of Ignatius, and how lucky we are that they have followed the lead of the homiletics professor who gave his class excellent advice for giving a good homily: 'Be clear, be brief and be gone!'"

--James Martin, S.J.
