Item description for Contemplatives in Action: The Jesuit Way by William A. Barry & Robert J. Doherty...
Overview Examines the nature of Jesuit spirituality, which is a spirituality of lifegiving and creative tensions.
Publishers Description In The Web of Deceit, Mark Curtis reasons that Britain is a rogue state, often a violator of international law and a systematic condoner of human rights abuses, as well as a key ally of many repressive regimes. He argues that under the Blair government, Britain has become a champion of a form of globalization that is increasing the takeover of the global economy by big business and, far from changing course post-September 11th, British policies are partly responsible for the continuation - and often deepening - of global poverty and inequality, while its arms exports and nuclear policies are making the world a more dangerous place.

Reviews - What do customers think about Contemplatives in Action: The Jesuit Way?
No Longer Divided Jan 31, 2006
One of the greatest challenges of responding with a life-giving "Yes" to the call to become a living reflection of Christ's presence in the world is dealing with the seemingly conflicting pulls. Do I spend time in prayer or in service? Do I want to join a religious order or become involved in a ministry where I live? "Contemplatives in Action" shows how these paradoxes can actually become a creative tension in our lives. It's wonderful!
A wonderful, compact little gem Sep 10, 2005
This small book is an excellent, accessible introduction to Jesuit spirituality. The authors, both highly respected Jesuits with vast experience of the Spiritual Exercises, have written a work intended for a general audience. Containing only 80 pages of text, the book is organized according to what the authors describe as "a set of lifegiving and creative tensions" inherent in Jesuit spirituality. Their approach is both innovative and clever. They cover some of the historical circumstances which called forth the kind of responses from the earliest Jesuits that have come to characterize Jesuit spirituality. I cannot think of a better, more compact introduction to Jesuit spirituality for the novice. Especially good for those working with Jesuits or in Jesuit apostolates who want a quick, helpful primer.
