This book is a most helpful and careful guide to anyone who desires to make an Ignatian retreat but is unable to make the Spiritual Exercises in a normal retreat. It is designed for those who want sincerely to place themselves 'face to face' with God so as to order their lives along his loving designs. Fr. Ravier is an expert retreat master who has been giving Ignatian retreats for over 30 years.
"A superb book that provides excellent guidance for making the Spiritual Exercises on one's own. Ravier's clear and practical book answers a long felt need for a one volume guide to finding the will of God in the disposition of our life."
— Fr. John Hardon, S.J. Author, The Catholic Catechism
"There is an urgent need for a 'Do-It-At-Home' Ignatian retreat. That need is beautifully met by Fr. Ravier. This book makes it possible for millions of Catholics to enter into the `interior castle' of Christian mysticism. Those who thirst for a drink of holiness and mystical experience can now find it in this Ignatian retreat manual."
— Fr. Kenneth Baker, S.J., Editor, Homiletic and Pastoral Review
"Fr. Ravier's book will be most helpful for anyone who wants to attempt the richness of a retreat with the Spiritual Exercises by following his guidance. It will also be of great use to retreat masters themselves."
— Fr. James V. Schall, S.J., Georgetown University
