About this book:
What does the phrase "making a retreat" bring to your mind's eye? The quiet of a monastery? A hermitage deep in the woods?
Such images make modern, overscheduled people sigh with longing. We've convinced ourselves that there simply isn't time for us to withdraw from "the world" and recharge our spiritual batteries. This encouraging book offers hope. It outlines a way to put aside the cares and preoccupations of our busy lives for a few minutes by means of a 30-day retreat that follows the principles of the famed Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius.
Michael Campbell-Johnston's warm, first-person approach will immediately put you at ease. He uses dialogue to navigate the exercises, quoting Scripture and prayers as the starting and ending points for each day's mini-retreat.
You will emerge from this experience feeling renewed and grounded in your faith!
