The Discernment of Spirits – An Ignatian Guide for Everyday Living
Author: Timothy M. Gallagher OMV
“By providing a sound understanding of Ignatian principles and applying them in a skillful way to daily life, Fr Gallagher meets the pressing needs of retreat directors, retreatants, students of spiritual theology, and others interested in deepening their spiritual lives. I know of no comparable volume that proves so helpful.” – Harvey D Egan, SJ, Professor of Systematic & Mystical Theology, Boston College
Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuits, is one of the most influential spiritual leaders of all time, yet many readers find his Rules for discernment hard to understand.
In this book, Fr Timothy Gallagher, a talented teacher, retreat leader, and scholar, helps us understand the Rules and how their insights are essential for our spiritual growth today. By integrating the Rules and the experience of contemporary people, Gallagher shows the precision, clarity, and insight of Ignatius’s Rules, as well as the importance of his thought for spiritual life today. When we learn to read Ignatius correctly, we discover in his remarkable words our own struggles, joys, and triumphs.
This book is for all who desire greater awareness of God’s action in their daily spiritual lives, and is essential reading for retreat directors, spiritual directors, priests, and counselors.
