  • The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius are perhaps the greatest retreat guide ever written. Neil Vaneys innovative approach to The Exercises is an invitation to a journey of discovery, a challenge to look for Christ in all things and to find him everywhere, even in a grain of sand.

    Exploring for the first time the unique connection between ecology and The Exercises, Vaney reveals their relevance in our contemporary age. He leads us on an adventure, helping us make The Exercises with our new awareness of the intimate bond between spirituality and the natural world.

    Vaney (Christian ethics, Good Shepherd Coll., New Zealand) has written an intriguing book, both deeply Catholic and deeply contemporary. The idea behind it is to use the famed Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius Loyola of the 16th century as a springboard for directed prayers, many of them ecological in focus, for our own century. While this reviewer is not certain that an ecological message is inherent in Ignatiuss disciplined little handbook rather than imposed from without, Vaneys Creation-inclusive method certainly conforms with Catholic understanding of nature and the world. Refugees from the works of Matthew Fox or Christians with environmental concerns will find much to celebrate here.
