The New Spiritual Exercises: In the Spirit of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

by Louis M Savary

For all practical purposes, the last comprehensive revolutionary advance in spirituality and spiritual practice for prayerful Christians was Ignatius Loyola's Spiritual Exercises in the 16th century. Most devout Christians today are using many of the same spiritual practices today. During the 20th century, Jesuit priest Teilhard de Chardin developed a truly revolutionary spirituality integrating into it the discoveries of science and a comprehensive evolutionary perspective--a perspective never conceived of before by traditional spiritual writers. Through his integration of science and faith, Teilhard offered us a new way to understand the Word of God and the immensity of the universal Christ. This book presents a spiritual renewal system for contemporary believers based on Ignatius' Spiritual Exercises and inspired by the modern insights of Jesuit priest-scientist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. This innovative book is a must for courses on Teilhard's spirituality and thought, traditional or contemporary spirituality, or Ignatius's Spiritual Exercises, devotees of Teilhard and/or the Spiritual Exercises, and those who give retreats.
