Making Choices in Christ

The Foundations of Ignatian Spirituality


In Making Choices in Christ, Joseph A. Tetlow, SJ, reveals how the ordinary person in modern times can embrace Ignatian spirituality through the extraordinary theology of St. Ignatius of Loyola and the Jesuits. This warmly written “field guide” to living Ignatian spirituality contains 40 concise meditations exploring what Ignatian spirituality is and isn’t; what it means to live by it; Ignatius’s legacy to all who practice Ignatian spirituality; and its important concepts and experiences, most notably the Spiritual Exercises.

Making Choices in Christ is an ideal resource to be used before or during a retreat with the Exercises, but it is also a great resource for the layperson who is curious about the “Jesuit mystique."
