Praise for Tim Muldoon
“Tim Muldoon has spent his academic life challenging people to become better individuals, better parents, and better Christians. By delving into the fresh waters of the Christian tradition, Ignatian spirituality, and contemporary theology, Tim has provided interesting arguments and thought-provoking metaphors to approach God, the Church, and the world in new and ever engaging ways.”
– Tomeu Estelrich, Director, Center for Ignatian Spirituality at Boston College
“Muldoon calls us to be mindful in our practices of faith. Mindfulness leads us to an authentic awareness of what we want out of faith in our lives. Starting with The Ignatian Workout and throughout his career, Muldoon provides the prompts and questions to guide a reimagined path of discernment.”
– Barb Harris, Ph.D., Director, Program for Ignatian Mindfulness, Creighton University

The series is a serious discussion of Ignatian principles of discernment. However, some of the talks (such as the one on friendship,) were full of scholarly references to Aristotle and British poets, but did not have any apparent connection to discernment.
