He attacks the Jesuits for allegedly derailing Ignatius' mission in the aftermath of Vatican II. Martin represents the wing of the Church that detests the Jesuits' new focus on social justice.4/5. A History from Ignatius to the Present is the subtitle of this book, a brief but entertaining and informative history of the Roman Catholic religious order most people know via their schools, retreats, lectures and scholarly works, and now via Pope Francis: The Society of Jesus, the Jesuits/5.
