​"A lovely children's book." -- James Martin, SJ, author of My Life with the Saints

"This beautiful and clever book makes you want to live with holy boldness." -- Fr. Michael Rossmann, SJ, author of The Freedom of Missing Out

"Audacious Ignatius tells the story of Ignatius using bold vocabulary, playful rhyme, and inspiring depth! It is a resource I will of course use as a parent, but also on retreats and in training spiritual directors to creatively and playfully tell the story of St. Ignatius of Loyola and teach the dynamics and graces of the Spiritual Exercises. The wisdom captured in the format of the children’s book is breath-taking!" --Becky Eldredge, spiritual director and author of Busy Lives & Restless and The Inner Chapel
