March 8 Podcast

James Martin, S.J., introduces his new books "The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything."
James Martin, S.J., culture editor at America and author of My Life with the Saints, introduces his latest book, a guide to Ignatian spirituality for the general reader. In A Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything, Father Martin explains such Jesuit maxims as "finding God in all things" and "contemplatives in action" while also providing a clear description of the examen, lectio divina and other ways to pray that have grown out of the Jesuit tradition. He also draws upon the work of Avery Dulles, Karl Rahner and other, lesser known Jesuits who have served as "wisdom figures" in his own life.
