Intersectional Ignatian Reading: The Weave
There were a lot of gripping moments in the explicitly Jesuit sf The Sparrow and its sequel, but they ultimately ended with a simplistic and heartbreaking depiction of God as a spiritual abuser actively permitting rape. Nancy Jane Moore does not mention Ignatius or the Society in The Weave, but it is a far more successful and enjoyable piece of Ignatian fiction. Compelling worldbuilding provides the backdrop for richly developed characters engaging discernment, call, conflict, healing, lament, and restorative justice.
