We have just released a new edition of A Pilgrim’s Testament: The Memoirs of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, edited by Barton T. Geger, SJ.
Early Jesuits urged Saint Ignatius of Loyola (1491–1556), founder of the Society of Jesus, to share the story of how God had worked in his soul. His memoirs, they hoped, would inspire and guide Jesuits and other readers for years to come.
Barton T. Geger, S.J.,provides a new introduction and original annotations for this edition of A Pilgrim’s Testament. Geger includes fascinating notes that accompany this important text, making the autobiography of Ignatius of Loyola more accessible to all.
Readers will find Ignatius struggling with many of the same questions and tensions that Christians face every day: Why should I belong to the church, if I can follow God in my own way? What should I do with my life? How do I fight this temptation? How do I know when God is trying to tell me something? Is it ever acceptable to say “no” to good people who ask for my help?
