Readers Guide to 'The Jesuit Guide'

A Jesuit friend likes to say: "Cheap is good; free is better."  In that spirit, here is a free Reading and Discussion Guide for The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything, which has just been posted online, and can be downloaded and printed out.  This version will be in the paperback version due out in 2012.  Until then, feel free to use this, which includes a Q&A, Reflection Questions, Ten Things You (Almost) Didn't Know About the Jesuits, and a section called Friends in the Lord, which looks at the interconnected lives of the Jesuit saints.  It's all here.  AMDG.
