Product Description:

'If you are willing to live a life of prayer and practise the disciplines of solitude and community,....

Review:

How can we be still and hear God's word in our frenetic world? How can we be intimate with each other without being hurt? How do we deal with death in a society in thrall to youth? Of what use is a minister to an increasingly secular population? If you've ever asked these questions, then Christian writer and lecturer Henri Nouwen has some robust answers in the four books which comprise this volume.

Making All Things New deals with building an internal spiritual life against a backdrop of external demands. Nouwen points out that in order to be at peace, Christ does not ask us to withdraw from the world, only that we should realign our lives with Him at the centre.

In Intimacy, Nouwen not only considers how we relate to Christ but how we relate to our fellow human beings. Again, he is concerned with the balance between the internal and external, covering such areas as intimacy and sexuality, intimacy and prayer, intimacy and community and intimacy and the ministry.

A Letter of Consolation is Nouwen's own intimate reaching out to his father following the death of his mother. Offering comfort and healing to anyone grappling with bereavement, this letter is Nouwen's attempt to make sense of her death.

Finally, the idea of healing continues in The Living Reminder, which looks at the psychological guidance and healing a minister can bring to his congregation. Nouwen's writing is always challenging--these four inspiring books offer one uplifting read. --Amanda Cameron
