A Profile of the Contemporary Jesuit: His Challenges and Opportunities

John R. Sheets


Introduction. The scope, method, and limitations of the essay. The scope: to treat the Jesuit today in the context of the challenges he faces, and to indicate how these challenges can become opportunities for growth. The method: to situate the challenges faced by the Jesuit within those faced by all men of our times, by other Christians, and other religious; then to comment on the particular challenges that belong to him as a Jesuit. The limitations: those of the writer together
