Product Description

This touching observation is central to the probing spiritual jouranal of Henri Nouwen recorded during his seven-month stay in a trappist monastery. During this period he had a unique opportunity to explore crucial issues of the spiritual life and discover "a quiet stream underneath the fluctuating affirmations and rejections of my little world." Nouwen participated fully in the daily life and routine of the Abbey of the Genesee in upstate New York- in work and in prayer. He relates here the typical human experiences and questions that had somehow disallowed Christ to be the center of his existence. From the early weeks in the abbey dominated by conflicting desires and concerns to the final days of Advent, when he has found a new sense of calm expectation, Nouwen never loses his critical honesty. Insightful, compassionate, often humorous, always realistic, The Genesee Diary is both an inspiration and a challenge to those who are in search of themselves.

"This is an extraordinary account of a man seeking inner peace and total commitment to God... a fine portrait of cloistered life, a beautifully written account of one man's soul-searching."
