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.

    Book Review

    Posted by Elliott Gualtiere on Jun 5th 2024

    This book is an excellent resource for those exploring the spiritual exercises. It presents such rich content for this 12 week experience. It gives the retreatant much to pray and reflect on. The format is easy to follow and having the prayer material and space for journal writing all in one is convenient. It has everything you need to have a meaningful retreat experience.

    This has been a wonderful way to bring a small group through an Ignatian Retreat in 12 weeks. Fr. Tetlow’s daily guidance is thoughtful, probing and rich.

    It's a very good book that helps one to get to know Jesus in a more personal way.

    Using this reading material as a daily walk with St Ignatius and God the Father's love has helped me to daily seek Him in all that I do.

    Great Ignatian Guide

    Posted by Scott on Jun 6th 2023

    I have used this once before and bought it again for an online retreat. The book is very easy to use and has profound insights. The texts for prayer are printed in the book, so you don't have to use your own Bible unless you want to.

    Finding Christ in the World

    Posted by William H Gervais on Sep 5th 2022

    I beleive this publication would help an individual - with the direction of a spiritual director - with praying, reflecting and following in the footsteps of Jesus as those who have completed the 19th annotation. It is a good manual. I have not used it either as a siritaul director or someone looking to follow it. However, I have it available and I will certainly recommend it.

    The workbook has ample room for writing my thoughts.
