St. Ignatius of Loyola was born in 1491, one of 13 children of a family of minor nobility in northern Spain. As a young man Ignatius Loyola was inflamed by the ideals of courtly love and knighthood and dreamed of doing great deeds.But in 1521 Ignatius was gravely wounded in a battle with the French. While recuperating, Ignatius Loyola experienced a conversion. Reading the lives of Jesus and the saints made Ignatius happy and aroused desires to do great things. Ignatius realized that these feelings were clues to God's direction for him.Over the years, Ignatius became expert in the art of spiritual direction. He collected his insights, prayers, and suggestions in his book The Spiritual Exercises, one of the most influential books on the spiritual life ever written. With a small group of friends, Ignatius Loyola founded the Society of Jesus, or the Jesuits. Ignatius conceived the Jesuits as "contemplatives in action." This also describes the many Christians who have been touched by Ignatian spirituality.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius: Based on Studies in the Language of the Autograph?

The Most Reliable Translation  Dec 1, 2005
Ignatius was a soldier in the 16th century in Spain. He dictated the way that helped him grow closer to God. Given this context one can see why an authentic translation is difficult and necessarily 'ancient' in literature style. Ignatius himself adapted this when helping different people.

I believe Fr. Puhl is the first one who has given number to the text. This system becomes the standard followed by most if not all authors writing about the Spiritual Exercises subsequently. His translation is recommended for the students in the Toronto School of Theology.
 
An excellent translation  Oct 29, 2002
St Ignatius spiritual classic is brought to life by this translation. The well presented additional information on the life and times of the saint is very helpful. St Ignatius' method of deepening ones spirituality and closeness to God really works. I had a few problems with some quirks deriving from the dark side of medieval Catholicism. Nevertheless this is an excellent book and the exercises are profitable if adopted sensibly. A good read for the church historian and Christian believer alike.
