By describing, analyzing, and synthesizing Nouwen's writings, the author shows how Nouwen's integrative pursuit of the spiritual life and its formation---one that weaves spirituality with psychology, ministry, and theology in a seamless fashion---is both fueled and tempered by his own experience of imperfection. Henri Nouwen: A Spirituality of Imperfection vividly portrays a counterintuitive and countercultural "brand" of spirituality in which the journey to perfection is through the sobering realities of imperfection.
Wil Hernandez, PhD, works for The Leadership Institute in Southern California in partnership with the Denver-based Spiritual Formation Alliance. He also serves as the Director of Community Formation at Evergreen Baptist Church of L.A. In addition, he teaches a course on the spirituality of Henri Nouwen at Fuller Theological Seminary and at the Center for Religion and Spirituality at Loyola Marymount University.
