One of the world's leading spiritual directors introduces readers to the dynamics of the Spiritual Exercises. First published in 1548, The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius was intended as a guide for others on their own spiritual journeys. Today, almost five hundred years later, people continue to seek the heart-to-heart encounter with God through the experience of the Exercises. While many scholarly books and commentaries have explored the Spiritual Exercises, respected spiritual director George Aschenbrenner introduces the reader to the dynamics that are at the heart of the exercises in Stretched for Greater Glory. With great passion and enthusiasm, Aschenbrenner describes what happens when one engages in the Exercises. his straightforward commentary and vast knowledge make this book appropriate for both the novice spiritual seeker and the experienced spiritual director. throughout the book Aschenbrenner shows how the Exercises stretch the desires of the heart and focus one's love on God and in grateful service of others.
