God's Welcome: A Co-Creative Vision of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius for Women
By: Rev. Cynthia Byers Walter, DMin
About the Book
While remaining true to the original Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, God’s Welcome presents the exercises in a more dialogical format that respects the range of experience of twenty-first century seekers. Conceived as a response to the issues women typically face when making the Exercises, this book appeals to anyone interested in a deeper, co-creative, and cooperative relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
Using the Ignatian pattern of a daily discipline of prayer, God’s Welcome takes the seeker through a journey of about nine months, in which spiritual growth is informed not only by Holy Scripture, but by the scripture of daily life and experience.
