HENRI J.M. NOUWEN is one of the most prolific and popular spiritual writers of our time. He wrote more than 40 books and taught at the University of Notre Dame as well as Yale and Harvard. For the 10 years before his death in 1996, he was part of the L’Arche Daybreak community in Toronto, sharing life with people with developmental disabilities.From AudioFile:
Nouwen, a Catholic priest, has become known as a mystic teacher, penning much that crosses the traditional boundaries of world religions. Indeed, his controversial advocating of "centering" and contemplative prayer, along with other elements of Buddhist or Eastern mysticism, is a major part of his legacy. OUT OF SOLITUDE presents three meditations on Jesus's personal choices of solitude that call on modern religious people to consider incorporating solitude into their spiritual lives. Paul Smith voices the melancholy joy that undergirds much of the work without losing the necessary warmth that keeps the piece from becoming bleak. As he empathizes with the text, his voice serves as a friendly guide through the solitude and lonely places Nouwen lays bare.
