Draw Me Into Your Friendship: A Literal Translation and a Contemporary Reading of the Spiritual Exercises
Draw Me into Your Friendship is a gateway to Ignatius’s Spiritual Exercises that combines a literal translation from the Spanish with a contemporary interpretation enriched by the author’s 25 years of experience with the Exercises. For example, where Ignatius prescribes the first exercise of the day at “midnight,” the author explains, “‘Midnight’ does not describe actual time, but rather indicates that the prayer period should be after an initial experience of deep sleep…. It is at this time when both body and mind are relaxed and quiet that the prayer period can be very fruitful”. This volume is designed to serve directors of the Spiritual Exercises, retreatants, and modern readers who wish to become better acquainted with the classic text.

Really enjoy the side by side literal reading and contemporary translation. It makes it easier to understand, especially for the lay person. I think it's a wonderful text. Thank you!
