For nearly 500 years, the Exercises have been a tool for spiritual formation. During those years their popularity has ebbed and flowed, but they are now experiencing something of a revival across the breadth of the Church.

This is not a book about the methods or techniques of Christian formation but one that enables you to come before God through the Gospel narratives in order to encounter Jesus afresh. If you hunger for something deeper, yearn to walk with Jesus (not just read about him), and desire to embrace more of what God is doing in and through you, then this is the book for you.

Is this book for me?

Prayerfully and honestly work through the statements below, asking God to reveal to you if this book is the right spiritual formation vehicle for you at this time.

1. You have a strong desire to know Jesus more intimately, love Jesus more fully and follow Jesus more wholeheartedly.

2. You have a longing for a deeper, richer and more expansive relationship with God.

3. You desire to live with an internalised awareness that in God you live, move and have your being, and to find God in all things.

4. You have the desire, time (50-75 minutes a day, seven days a week for about nine months) and space in your life to engage fully in the Exercises.

5. You are willing to be open and honest with God, your spiritual director and yourself as you journey through these Exercises.

6. You are willing to follow Jesus during good times and difficult times.

7. You are open to having your theology and image of Jesus challenged and expanded.

8. You yearn to walk with Jesus through the Gospel narratives in a holistic and interactive way rather than merely read about Jesus.

9. You are willing to say 'no' to whatever holds you back from spiritual freedom.

10. You desire to enter into a spiritual practice that will help you better partner with what God is doing in you to conform you to the image of Christ.

11. You long for a vehicle that will help you to be more consistent and intentional in spending time with Jesus and connecting with God throughout the day.

12. You sense the gentle invitation of God to enter into the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius of Loyola.

If there is a 'yes' that rises from deep within you as you read through the above list, or if you sense the quivering of excitement beginning to grow in your spirit as you consider the possibility of walking with Jesus through the Gospels, or if it is not so dramatic but simply a gentle knowing that this is for you, I strongly encourage you to embark on this journey.

If none of the above is the case, this may not be the right vehicle for you at this time. God works uniquely with each person, and the important thing is not that you are doing this or that, but that you are where God wants you. If this is not the right timing for you, please do not forget about the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola, for there may very well be a time when these Exercises will be the exact vehicle for spiritual formation that God desires you to embrace.
