Gospel book for St. Ignatius retreat

  • I’m trying to track down a good “gospel book” for this retreat.  I have never heard of such a thing, and it seems that it is not necessarily the entire New Testament that is being asked to accompany me. 
    I want a physical book. I have no issue purchasing online, but want to be careful as a quick search brings up things like evangelical gospels. 
    Can someone provide a current link or safe website to peruse?  Thank you very much.

    I am not sure what youmean by a good "gospel book" or what "it seems that it is not necessarily the entire New Testament that is being asked to accompany me" means.

    Can you explain please, cruiser.

  • I am going on a five day St. Ignatius retreat. Among the short list of items to bring with me are a copy of the Imitation of Jesus Christ, and a “gospel book”. The only gospel book I know of is in the New Testament. I get the feeling that this is not what is meant in that list. 
    I do not know what a gospel book is, really, especially in light of bringing one to this retreat. It was suggested to me by my wife to perhaps bring Cornelius a Lapide’s commentary on the four gospels, but that is a scholarly work, four volumes, and a bit pricey (though I certainly wouldn’t mind acquiring it-seems to be a well made and well thought out collection). 
    What say you? Is there something more compact and appropriate for this retreat?

  • Imitation of Christ by Thomas Kempis is a good book for the retreat.  Christian Warfare, My daily Bread, 
    To live with the Saints in Heaven is all bliss and glory....To live with the saints on Earth is just another story!  (unknown)

  • Why don't you contact the retreat centre/director and ask them?

    It seems to me a strange way of expressing themselves. Maybe they just mean a copy of the Gospels, for which a New Testament or complete Bible would suffice.

  • You can buy individual gospels in separate volumes with commentary.
