"St. Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Jesuits, would be proud to know that his work continues into the 21st century."--Publishers Weekly
Young Jesuits write about faith, culture, and lives of Christian discipleship.
A collection of essays on faith, culture, spirituality, and religious practice by young Jesuits (seminarians and recently ordained priests) associated with The Jesuit Post (www.thejesuitpost.org), this book is aimed at young adult seekers both within and outside mainstream Christian churches and traditional religious practice. The authors seek to embrace and explain a faith that is relevant, and to speak to their peers "as one friend speaks to another," drawing inspiration from the spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius.
"The Jesuit Post offers readers not only sage advice and educated opinions but also glimpses of the idealism and prayerfulness that inspired these men to join the Society of Jesus. I highly recommend it."--Ron Hansen
