In this enlightening book, William Barry and Robert Doherty explain just what makes Jesuits tick. Through an exploration of Jesuit spirituality--what makes it different from other spiritualities, even Ignatian spirituality--they help readers understand this religious order that has played a significant role in the life of individuals, of communities and of cultures. They demonstrate that at the heart of Jesuit spirituality lies a set of lifegiving and creative tensions between, for example, companionship and mission, obedience and learning from experience, and center and periphery in the Church.
