A Dynamic Spirituality for the 21st Century. In this vividly written book, Modras explores the life of St. Ignatius of Loyola, his founding of the Society of Jesus, and the development of the Spiritual Exercises. He shows how Ignatian spirituality retains extraordinary strength and relevance nearly five centuries after Loyola's death. At its heart, it is a humanism that defends human rights, prizes learning from other cultures, seeks common ground between science and religion, struggles for justice, and honors a God who is actively at work in creation.
The impact of the Jesuits is made tangible in five compelling biographies: Matteo Ricci, the first Westerner at the court of the Chinese emperor; Friederich Spee, who defended women accused of witchcraft; Karl Rahner, the greatest Catholic theologian of the 20th century; Pierre Theilhard de Chardin, the scientist-mystic; and Pedro Arrupe, the charismatic leaders of the Jesuits in the years following Vatican II.
