Ever since the Spiritual Exercises were first published in 1548, the need has been felt for explanations to help guide those giving them: hence the so-called Directories. But directors today continue to feel the same need, perhaps more acutely than ever with the spread in popularity of both spiritual direction and retreat work. Michael Ivens has drawn both on the wealth of published material and on the wisdom of his own long experience to produce a new commentary that attempts to unravel the inner workings of the Spiritual Exercises. He presents a new translation, as faithful as possible to the original, while commenting in detail on words or phrases that call for elucidation. At the same time his longer introductions to each section enable the director to distinguish the wood from the trees, and arrive at a firm and nuanced understanding of a great classic of western spirituality. Michael Ivens is a Jesuit priest. He worked for many years with The Way publications, and was then appointed as spiritual director to young Jesuit priests and brothers in their final year of training. Later he helped to establish a new retreat centre, St Beuno's in North Wales, with its specialized work in guided retreats.
