9780826412836: The Spiritual Legacy of Henri Nouwen

In 1969, the year following the death of Thomas Merton, Henri Nouwen published his first book. Who, reading Intimacy: Essays in Pastoral Psychology, at the time could have guessed that its 37 year old Dutch priest-author would become one of the most popular spiritual writers of the 20th-century?Unlike Merton, whose strictly spiritual writings appealed almost exclusively to Roman Catholics, Nouwen had an enormous following among Protestants as well as Catholics. What was it about this man and his work that so resonated with the American psyche over the past thirty years?In The Spiritual Legacy of Henri Nouwen, Deidre LaNoue analyzes Nouwen's voluminous writings in the context of his life and times, providing a key to his more than forty individual books as well as a cogent summary of his contribution to the spiritual lives of millions of people. The book includes a complete bibliography of Nouwen's writings as well as a Scripture index of his books.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

The last 30 years in America have produced a generation that chose to leave the status quo of religion behind and tried to make its own way spiritually in a world that was all too quickly overwhelming the soul....In the cafeteria of spiritual options available to such seekers, Nouwen communicated an authentic and relevant expression of the Christian life without being authoritarian. He did not threaten or manipulate....The Christian faith was not about "shoulds" and "oughts." It was about relationships that could satisfy the deepest desires of the soul.
