“A fine introduction to the spiritual life.”
-National Catholic Reporter
“In this quietly written call to follow the way of Christian spirituality, Nouwen emphasizes the necessity for a personal program of contemplative solitude and for the individual’s involvement in a community of like-seeking Christians.”
“Nouwen skillfully blends his knowledge of psychological growth with the great Christian traditions of spiritual development.”
“[Henri Nouwen] offers faith in plain speech, solid nourishment for the soul.”
-Kathleen Norris, author of The Cloister Walk
“An invitation to the peace of mind and all-embracing love that is called the Holy Spirit.”
“In this little book, Nouwen urges us the one thing necessary: a total, fearless listening to the Father.”
-The Living Church
“It so clearly and beautifully lets us know where, and when, and what kind of event is the spiritual life.”
-The Presbyterian Outlook
“An instructive and gentle book. Henri Nouwen does more than tell us that solitude and community are essential for the spiritual life. His words impart a spirit that will better enable his readers to provide themselves with these seemingly contradictory necessities.”
-Elizabeth O'Connor, author of Journey Inward, Journey Outward
