These Personal Writings reveal the intense inwardness and devotional depths of the private man." "His Reminiscences give a vivid account of his conversion and psychological turmoil, of his pilgrimage to Jerusalem, and of the years of study and controversy in Spain and Paris leading to the creation of the Society of Jesus. The immensely influential Spiritual Exercises offer guidelines for helping people discover God in their lives, coming to terms with their flaws, and making choices about their future. In the Spiritual Diary Ignatius shows himself drawing on these methods to work through a period of crisis." "All these major works have been included in this volume, along with forty letters specially selected by the editors. Together with the Preface, Introduction to each text and detailed notes, they make one of the greatest of religious characters freshly available to modern readers."--Jacket.
