  • “Uncommonly fresh.”

    “I found this an uncommonly fresh approach to experiencing the Spiritual Exercises, to finding God in everyday life.”

    Walter J. Burghardt, S.J.

  • “Brilliant and profound.”

    “The book is deceptively simple. While remaining very readable, it is a brilliant and profound distillation of Christian spirituality.”

  • “Down-to-earth and refreshing.”

    “William Barry writes so simply and clearly that it is easy to underestimate the wealth of spiritual direction experience and grasp of spiritual theology, philosophy and behavioural science that make his comments so down-to-earth and refreshing.”
