Product Description

The last book published by Henri Nouwen before his untimely death in 1996, Can You Drink the Cup? explores the deep spiritual impact of the question Jesus asked his friends James and John. Reflecting upon the metaphor of the cup, Nouwen uses the images of holding, lifting, and drinking to articulate the basics of the spiritual life. The cup, a symbol used to celebrate a wide range of human endeavors, becomes for him an image to illustrate spiritual potential. Written with the profound insight and clarity characteristic of his numerous best-selling books, Nouwen's deeply perceptive exploration of Jesus' challenging question has the power to pierce your heart, expand your spiritual horizons, and radically change your life.
Unabridged audio CD; approximately 2 hours; 2 CDs; read by Dan Anderson, O.F.M.

Publisher's Description

"Can you drink the cup…?" Jesus asked this question of his friends James and John (Matthew 20:20-23). It is this question, explains our spiritual guide Henri Nouwen, that "has the power to crack open the hardened heart and lay bare the tendons of the spiritual life."

Nouwen uses the cup as a metaphor to articulate the basic postures of the spiritual life: holding, lifting and drinking.

The cup is a powerful image in our human experience. We use cups in our celebrations of a variety of events. Nouwen reminds us that we also use the cup as a symbolic vessel—for sorrow, joy, blessings, salvation. "Drinking our cup to the bottom is seen as the expression of the full freedom of the sons and daughters of God," Nouwen writes. His goal is to make the question Jesus posed to James and John pierce our hearts so that a personal answer can emerge from it.

The way we answer Jesus' question, "Can you drink the cup…?" has the power to radically change our lives.

2 CDs/2 hours (approx.)
