Time to Change
Full Product Description
Everybody needs to make a retreat. To find a moment in our busy lives to try to stop fretting and worrying about so many different things, and to sit in silence at God’s feet and just to listen. ‘Where it is all leading? What’s the purpose of it all?’ A retreat is simply an attempt to see beyond the many cares and occupations we normally have and to ask ourselves these questions. Time to Change takes the basic format and principles of The Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius and allows us to make a retreat without interrupting too much of our daily routine and all the things we have to do.
Time To Change teaches us that if we set out on this journey, we will discover what God is saying to us personally, at this particular moment in our lives.
Based on the book,The spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Catholic religious order known as the Jesuits.
Time to Change by Michael Campbell-Johnston was published by Darton Longman & Todd in January 2010 and is our 31496th best seller. The ISBN for Time to Change is 9780232527827.

Time To ChangeBarry Vendy, via The Good Book Stall
The author performs a valuable service in bringing a classic of Christian spirituality, namely The Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius Loyola, within reach of people who may just not be able to get away for a full-blown retreat.
Reading a book about retreats, however good (and this one is good) will always fall short of going on retreat. This book, like the Exercises, should be ‘done’, or ‘made’, and not simply read. It will bring most benefit to someone who is committed to ‘making the retreat it advocates’.
It is aimed, again like the Exercises, at “election or resolutions for the amendment of your life”, moving from “the selfish love with which we are all born” towards “a totally unselfish love, which is our only way of sharing in the existence of God who is love.” The book’s 30 brief chapters correspond to the 30-day duration of a full retreat, and the material follows the division of the Exercises into 4 ‘weeks’: 1. Sin and our need; 2. Incarnation; 3. Passion; 4. Resurrection.
The author acquaints us with some of the beautiful and profound meditations in the original classic, and comments on abiding features of Ignatius’ spirituality, such as finding God in all things, the value of a daily examination of conscience, discernment among the spiritual influences upon us and creative ways of reading the Bible.
