Famous for their practical spirituality and ardent commitment to education, the Jesuits have a reputation as smart people of faith who change lives for the better and make a difference in the world.
The traditional wisdom that Jesuits use to help other people in their daily lives - how to make decisions, how to move towards freedom, how to live a spiritual life in the modern world - are easily applied, but not often explained well to the general public. The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything translates the 500-year-old insights of Saint Ignatius for a modern audience, using stories and examples from Martin's 20 years as a Jesuit and from the lives of the great Jesuit saints and spiritual masters.
With both humour and substance, Martin delivers a terrific read - a New York Times bestseller in hardcover - as he helps readers tackle the big questions of life by sharing the spiritual practices that Jesuits have been applying for 500 years.
