Not too long ago Ignatius Loyola would not have been regarded as a Christian mystic. Rather, he would have been placed among the ascetics – a soldier-saint, the author of the Spiritual Exercises, the founder of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), a skilful organizer whose principles of governance are still studied in schools of management.

Today, Ignatius is recognised as a major mystic in the western Christian tradition and his other qualities and achievements are seen in a new light – as flowing from the deep inner fountain that is his mystical relationship with God.

Drawing on his own familiarity with the sources, O’Leary gives a clear and accessible account of what we now know about Ignatius as a mystic, offering a truly transforming reading experience.
