Editorial Reviews

From AudioFile

With clarity, Murray Bodo narrates the spiritual insights and convictions of Henri Nouwen, renowned Catholic priest and mentor. Nouwen presents a systematic three-step plan for living spiritually to achieve union with God. Step one addresses personal isolation and our longing to feel connected to something greater than ourselves. Step two concentrates on our relationship to others as we move toward hospitality. Step three focuses on the reality of prayer and its importance for personal growth. Nouwen is convinced that it's through our search for personal answers and connectedness that we find hope and confidence to persevere in a search for God. Bodo's skilled narration makes this complex subject understandable when listened to in short intervals.

Henri Nouwen was born in Holland in 1932 and ordained a Catholic priest in 1957. He obtained his doctorandus in psychology from Nijmegen University in The Netherlands and taught at Notre Dame, Yale, and Harvard. He experienced the monastic life with Trappist monks at the Abbey of the Genesee, lived among the poor in Latin America with the Maryknoll missioners, and was interested and active in numerous causes related to social justice. After a lifetime of seeking, Henri Nouwen finally found his home in Canada, as pastor of L'Arche Daybreak - where people with intellectual disabilities and their caregivers live together in community.

Henri Nouwen wrote over 40 books on spirituality and the spiritual life that have sold millions of copies and been translated into dozens of languages. His vision of spirituality was broad and inclusive, and his compassion embraced all of humankind.

He died in 1996. His work and his spirit live on.

Henri Nouwen pronounced his name "Henry Now-en." For more information on his life and work, please visit www.henrinouwen.org .
