Product Overview

Finding Christ in the World invites the reader to “let God show you where and how He concretely breaks into your life.” A 12–week prayer experience framed by the Spiritual Exercises, the book is of particular help to faith communities such as Bible study and prayer groups. But individuals can also use it as a means of prayer. The instructions for retreat invite a “conversion of heart from a tight focus on one’s self to a graced focus on God–with–us.” The book includes questions and prompts for reflection (for example, “When I think about God listening to me, I want to tell him…”), and guidelines for reviewing each week of prayer. We have improved the 2017 edition with curl-resistant front and back covers.

    This book (Finding Christ in the World) is serving me as a refresher on the full Ignation Spiritual Exercises done 25 years ago.

    This is helping me return to a daily prayer practice which has a focus to if. Some of the 12 weeks are difficult and somewhat challenging to grasp but, for the most part, the spiritual invitations to forge a lasting bond with and accountability to God and Jesus are well developed and certainly contemporary in application. I feel fortunate to have found this resource.

    Time to get closer to Jesus

    I have found this very inspiring and uplifting. I find that going to prayer with the same reading for two days helps to re-enforce the message of the reading. I'm glad to be a part of this virtual retreat.

    Retreat Material

    The retreat book is well bound. The pages are strong enough for journaling on. The content had a good introduction and clear description of how to do the retreat.

    I have participated in the Ignatian SpiriutalExercise for the past 4 years as a 32 week retreat. I’m in the second week of this 12 week retreat and find it beautifully capturing the essence of the exercises! I feel like it is a great introduction to Ignatian spirituality.

    I love this workbook for the Manresa retreat. The right amount of space and encouragement to write my thoughts.
