The Ignatian Workout: Daily Exercises for a Healthy Faith

by Tim Muldoon

We all know the importance of physical exercise, but what about the spiritual exercises--those exercises that keep us fit spiritually? The Ignatian Workout promotes the importance of achieving spiritual fitness and presents a dynamic program of "workouts" based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius.Designed for reading, reflection, and prayer, the book includes a brief history of St. Ignatius and an overview of the Spiritual Exercises. Based on a 4-week program originally designed as a 30-day retreat, each week focuses on a different element of the mystery of the Christian faith. This unique guide to spiritual well-being concludes with a list of resources and Web sites for continued study.
TIM MULDOON is a theologian, professor, and author of many books including The Ignatian Workout and, with Sue Muldoon, The Discerning Parent: An Ignatian Guide to Raising Your Teen. He has taught Ignatian spirituality for many years at the undergraduate and graduate levels at Boston College, Washington Theological Union, and LaSalle University. He and his wife Sue live with their three children just west of Boston.
