  What is The Way ?

The Way is an international journal of contemporary Christian spirituality, published by the British Jesuits. Through writing informed by critical and creative scholarship, it aims to provide a forum in which thoughtful Christians, from different walks of life and different traditions, reflect on God’s continuing action in human experience.

Among particular concerns of The Way are:

  •  the role of spirituality in the struggle for justice
  •  the spiritual issues raised by intercultural and interreligious dialogue
  •  the interactions between spirituality, politics and culture
  •  the fostering and development of the Ignatian spiritual tradition.

To find out more about how The Way understands spirituality read this article from the first issue after our relaunch in 2003, ‘The Ignatian Spirituality of The Way.

And to find out more about the history of The Way read this: The Way, 1961–1986’
