David M. Stanley SJ, I Encountered God!

Both the evangelist St John and St Ignatius could truly exclaim, ‘I encountered God!’ Both, too, have left us a record of their spiritual experiences, from which sprang their outlooks on God and humankind.

The present book reveals the similarity in their outlooks on the spiritual life. From John’s ‘spiritual Gospel’ Father Stanley selects passages appropriate to an Ignatian retreat and interprets them in depth.

He presents biblical theology oriented toward the heart. It is intended to open the way to affective prayer and contemplation. He provides considerable help toward practice of the age old ‘prayerful reading of Scripture’ (lectio divina); indeed, in an appendix, he shows what that lectio has been in history, and suggests an actual method of doing it.

This is a book predominantly intended to deepen one’s spiritual life, especially by basing it more firmly on a deeper understanding of Scripture. It is useful particularly for retreat directors or retreatants who have had experience with St Ignatius’s Spiritual Exercises. But a prayerful reading of this book will help others also to absorb directly from St John much of the result ordinarily expected from an Ignatian retreat.
