Item description for Letting God Come Close: An Approach to the Ignatian Spiritual Exercises by William A. Barry...
Overview With the rediscovery of Ignatian spirituality spurred by the Second Vatican Council, individual directed retreats of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola are commonplace. On any given day in the United States, hundreds of people are making the Exercises. As a result of this recovery of tradition, the Spiritual Exercises have taken on a new life in the church. Having served as a spiritual director for more than thirty years, Fr. William Barry has honed his approach to directing the Exercises, an approach that is considered imaginative, innovative, and yet faithful to the intent of Ignatius. He uses clear, down-to-earh examples from his own experience to instill in the director the trust, confidence, and skills he or she needs to help the retreatant approach God.
