Publisher's Description

“On the long road it’s good to have Nouwen and his divining rod. Deftly he bends toward the drop of spiritual wisdom caked in the most ordinary things.”
—Helen Prejean, C.S.J., author of Dead Man Walking

 

Henry J.M. Nowuen, one of the greatest of all spiritual writers, invites us to search deeply for the well-springs that nourish true ministry in his classic The Way of the Heart. Interweaving the solitude, silence, and prayer of the fifth-century Egyptian Desert Fathers and Mothers with our contemporary search for an authentic spirituality, The Way of the Heart not only leads us to a fuller encounter with God, but to a more creative ministry with our fellow human beings. Here is one of the most profound works from a writer known for his fresh and perceptive insights—and who stands alongside C.S. Lewis and Thomas Merton as an essential Christian scholar and thinker.

Author Bio

Henri J.M. Nouwen was a world-renowned spiritual guide, counselor, and bestselling author of over forty books that many today consider spiritual classics. He taught at the universities of Harvard, Yale, and Notre Dame before becoming the senior pastor of L’Arche Daybreak in Toronto, Canada, a community where men and women with intellectual disabilities and their assistants create a home for one another.

Editorial Reviews

“Clear, precise, biblically founded guidance...Skillfully blends knowledge of psychological growth with the great Christian traditions.”
“Brings desert spirituality to bear upon the contemporary scene. ... Hauntingly relevant for us today.”
“Gemlike in its clarity.”
“Inspiring, to the point, and eminently practical in his advice about living spiritually in the world of today.”
“On the long road it’s good to have Nouwen and his divining rod. Deftly he bends toward the drop of spiritual wisdom caked in the most ordinary things.”

    My pastor told me this is a "must read" and he was right. Most of us who have been in ministry of any kind for awhile have built up some baggage and need to get back to a foundation of just being alone with Jesus without words and distraction. This book does as good a job as any I've seen at blowing away the fluff that distracts from the "one thing" that's necessary.

    This is a must read for any pastor or layperson who wants to pursue an authentic, life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ that impacts your world. It's short sweet and to the point. I find myself reading it year after year.
