Item description for Inner Compass: An Invitation to Ignatian Spirituality by Margaret Silf & Gerald W. Hughes...

This refurbished edition of Inner Compass is being published as a celebration of the tenth anniversary of this acclaimed English-language primer on Ignatian spirituality. Written for lay people, Inner Compass is a practical and experience-based guide to greater self-knowledge and spiritual awareness through incorporating the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola. This updated edition features a new introduction and personal invitation to the reader, a greatly expanded resource section, and a new design aimed at a new generation of spiritual readers. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Publishers Description
10th Anniversary Edition Whatever path you're on, God is there to guide you . . .
Anyone seeking to deepen his or her relationship with God will greatly benefit from "Inner Compass," Margaret Silf's dynamic presentation of the profound insights of St. Ignatius of Loyola's Spiritual Exercises. While reflective, the work exudes a congenial, practical outlook and a thoroughly modern sensibility. As Silf points out, the book "grew out of questions rather than certainty, discovery rather than doctrine, the experience of everyday living rather than academic study."
This tenth-anniversary edition of the acclaimed "Inner Compass" features a new introduction and personal invitation to the reader, plus a significantly expanded resource section. Devoted followers of Ignatian spirituality and spiritual seekers alike will find that wherever life has led them, "Inner Compass "offers renewed direction and purpose and helps them recognize the will of God within their own hearts.

Reviews - What do customers think about Inner Compass: An Invitation to Ignatian Spirituality?

A wonderful spiritual book  May 4, 2008
A wonderful guide to everyday spiritual life through the prism of Ignatian (Jesuit) thought. Margaret Silf excels at relating deep spiritual themes to everyday experiences. In fact her writing reminds me of the parable style of the gospel. I read her columns in America and so bought this book. Now I have one other by her and will be getting more.
inner compass a winning guide  Jan 16, 2008
If you are considering Ignatian spirituality, the Inner Compass is a fine book to add to your library. Based on the Exercises of St. Ignatius, it clears our cluttered lives and points to our True North.
Not the full Exercises, but great for what it covers  Aug 7, 2007
The Spiritual Exercises designed by Ignatius of Loyola in the 1500s were designed to help Christians discern God's presence in their lives and they reputedly help clarify decision-making process, by bringing people closer to God's voice. I wanted to like Silf's book, which came highly recommended. It is a helpful mediation experience, but it stops at the first week stage. It also seemed to have a paucity of scripture passages for reflection, in comparison to the real format for the Exercises. I felt that "The Ignatian Workout" by Tim Muldoon, was a much better comprehensive introduction to Ignatian spirituality.

Ideally these exercises are taken under the guidance of a spiritual director. Traditionally, people used to withdraw from society for a month to dedicate their lives to nothing but the exercises and listening for God's direction. Some very fortunate people still can afford the luxury of unemployment for a month and indulge in this type of direction. Some Catholic religious orders require the retreat before their members commit themselves to membership by vows. However, for most of us normal working Christians, decent spiritual direction is hard to find. I tried to do a local version of the exercises, that lasted several months, meeting with a spiritual director as a group once a week, but the spiritual directors kept canceling on the group and then changing, which made it difficult to develop rapport.

The purpose of the exercises is not to get through them by set dates. People a re supposed to dwell on a passage that moves them, until they no longer feel that they learn from it. Silf's book is a good starting point for people who are trying to discern what is their own will and character, verses how much of their idea of themselves is constructed based on their interaction with the world, and the world's judgment of them, as well as habits they have accumulated. The book is less scriptural based than Ignatius' Exercises, and will probably appeal to people who are not Christian, but who are trying to discern what in their personalities and characters are most real in their lives.

Thanks and more power to the Author, Margaret Silf
She is a gifted Author divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit.

I love the book and it is truly a wonderful source of my new beginning and transformation. It makes me understand the true presence of God in my life. It truly gave me a lot of inspiration how to find some directions in my life. The title speaks for itself.
Overrated.   Mar 12, 2007
The first couple of chapters are okay, but then she goes into self-analysis and it ceases to be worth reading. I was very disappointed.
