The practice of spiritual direction assumes a theology of the Holy Spirit, a theology of revelation and of the Church, and a theology of prayer. Seeking God in All Things explores each of these themes as the underpinnings of spiritual direction and examines what makes the Christian religious experience distinctive. Since not every experience of God bears a Christian imprint, William Reiser, SJ, asks whether and in what way a Christian might be ale to assist someone who is not Christian in developing his or her interior life. This question looks beyond suggesting the concrete steps a person might take in initiating, nurturing, and solidifying a way of praying. It looks, rather, toward the fundamental issue of helping others as they discover and deepen their relationship to the mystery of God. Chapters are It Is God Who Directs," *Imagining Divine Action in Human Lives, - *Where Do Holy Desires Come From? - *What's Distinctive About the Christian Religious Experience? - *Further Elements of Christian Distinctiveness, - *The Incarnation as a Starting Point for Spiritual Direction, - and *Should Christian Spirituality Move Beyond Jesus? - William Reiser, SJ, PhD, is a professor of theology in the religious studies department at Holy Cross College, Worcester, Massachusetts. Over the past twelve years, he has also served as an associate staff member at the Center for Religious Development in Cambridge. He is the author of Jesus in Solidarity with His People, published by Liturgical Press. "

Eine volkstümliche, gut verständliche Bibel, wie es um die vorige Jahrhundertwende die Luther Bibel 1912 war.

Die Bibel wird sich - je nach Ausgabe - sowohl als missionarische Bibel, als auch als Studienbibel hervorragend eignen. Zahlreiche Erklärungen biblischer Wörter in Fußnoten sowie ein ausführlicher Anhang mit Sach- und Worterklärungen, Übersichtstabellen und Karten bieten Hilfen für den Bibelleser.

Not just for church and other public occasions, the Book of Common Prayer is an incredible resource for private and intimate conversations with God. It gives us rich words and phrases with which to pray, words that can slowly change our hearts and minds. Throughout his life as a priest, parent, teacher, head of school,and publisher, Ted Gleason has had thousands of conversations about prayer with children, teenagers, young adults, the middle-aged, and the elderly. This book is the fruit of those conversations as well as a love song to the words and cadences of the Book of Common Prayer. Gleason shows us how his long immersion in the prayers of the eucharist and morning prayer have been pathways to a deeper understanding of the presence of God. A gifted storyteller, Gleason has also filled this book with the vivid stories of others who pray and what happens when they do. He urges us to return to the practice of the presence of God every day of our lives, of which this book is a living and vivid example.

The expression of this Ignatian spirituality, as it is known, is as varied as the vast army of soldiers of Christ who have followed the call of St. Ignatius over the centuries to evangelize and educate.
