In recent years Ignatian spirituality has experienced a resurgence. There has been a widespread desire to learn more about Ignatius and his legacy, and many people have made the Spiritual Exercises in one of their many forms, growing through the experience.

God Ever Greater is accessibly written for those who are looking for an introduction to Ignatian spirituality, while being suitable for those who have some acquaintance with the Ignatian tradition. It will draw its readers into an exploration of a rich Christian heritage that continues to live and breathe today.

Brian O'Leary, SJ, is an Irish Jesuit who has worked almost exclusively in the field of spirituality. After completing his doctoral studies in Rome, he joined the staff at the Center of Ignatian Spirituality at Manresa House, Dublin. Over a fifteen-year period he directed retreats, conducted workshops (many focused on renewal in religious life), and helped with training programs. He is the author of several books, including Radical and Free (Messenger Publications, 2016).


“O’Leary has given us a fresh look at Ignatius and his testament to God’s working in his life such that we are more willing to embark on this exploration ourselves.”
James T. Bretzke, SJ, Professor of Theology, John Carroll University

“Brian O’Leary conceived his book as a journey to discover the ‘landscape’ of Ignatian spirituality—its origin in Ignatius’ experience and context and its current experience in a very different context. The ‘landscape’ most readers think familiar, in this writer’s hands, turns out to be full of rich surprises. God Ever Greater is a book to hold on to.”
Joseph A. Tetlow, SJ, Director of Montserrat Jesuit Retreat House, Lake Dallas, Texas

"An introductory text that is both accessible and nuanced. It is evident that the author makes this contribution from the stance of an authentic, lived spirituality steeped in Ignatian spirituality."

"There is much to like about this book. O'Leary knows his subject matter and writes for a broad audience. His insights into the life and times of Ignatius help the author to present an honest appraisal of one of the greatest saints of all time."
