Book Description:

In Making Choices in Christ, Joseph A. Tetlow, SJ, reveals how the ordinary person in modern times can embrace and live the extraordinary theology of St. Ignatius of Loyola and the Jesuits. In the process, Tetlow explains, the individual deepens and enriches his or her relationship with God.

Written in a warm and wise fashion, this book contains forty concise meditations exploring what Ignatian spirituality is and isn’t; what it means to live by it; Ignatius’s legacy to all who practice the spirituality; and its important concepts and experiences, most notably the Spiritual Exercises. This “field guide” to living Ignatian spirituality is an ideal resource to be used before or during a retreat with the Exercises, but it is also designed for the layperson who is curious about the “Jesuit mystique.”

Tetlow, who worldwide has overseen the efforts of more than two hundred Jesuit retreat houses and centers for spirituality, is uniquely equipped to describe how Ignatian spirituality is being interpreted and lived around the globe today—and how it helps us all to seek and find the active God at work in our lives.
