Spiritual DirectionJohnny Douglas, via The Good Book Stall
Henri Nouwen consistently promoted the practice of spiritual direction, but he never wrote a book on the subject. This is surprising since he wrote a wide array of books on just about any given subject in the Christian spiritual quest. He did write a number of articles on the subject, and there are a number of unpublished articles and writings pertaining to the subject. Two close friends and associates of Nouwen, have compiled these writings. Nouwen's rich writing and his ability to speak to the heart will make this book a treasure for any reader. The book covers the basic topics that any book on spiritual direction should include. It begins with life's basic questions, looking at direction in life, the quest for God, and prayer. While the book is ecumenical in approach, Nouwen is indebted to his roots in the Roman Catholic tradition.
This is one of the best books on spiritual direction that I have read -- and I have read many. It is clear, focused, practical, and thoughtful. It is good as a starting point for one wanting to learn about spiritual direction -- and it is good as a resource to re-focus one's spiritual journey. Each chapter contains both Henri Nouwen's wonderful insights and "spiritual exercises" for going deeper. Nouwen’s gift is to shatter the barriers between God and ourselves, inviting us to come home again like prodigals: repeatedly inviting us to dwell in the heart of God. The book will not only be enriching for present readers but will be an important resource in years to come. Top-class!
