Peter Kuskis5 Stars Out Of 5February 9, 2009Peter KuskisI have listened to this audiobook several times now, and have been moved to consider the wisdom of the Desert Fathers. Solitude, silence, and prayer lead us back to our first love and help maintain a closeness with God in the midst of everyday life. Highly recommended.
Larry Noriega3 Stars Out Of 5October 16, 2007Larry NoriegaThe original recordings I listened to on Desert Spirituality were on tape. 'Wore two sets out, and could lip-synch them by then. Wanting a copy of Nouwen's reflections on CD, located this one. A very faithful recording, but it loses something in the reading in American Standard English, and I found myself missing the heavy Dutch accents of Henri Nouwen. His pauses, inflections--the time he took in reading his own work stay with me like the Russian peasant who learned the Jesus Prayer by heart. This is a valuable collection, especially for those who haven't heard the original. For this reason, the content assumes greater importance than form for those seeking to find the disciplines of solitude, silence, and constant prayer. Thanks so much.
