Henri J. M. Nouwen

 

'I am thriving in the hermitage: it is the ideal milieu for me, out in the woods, plenty of silence and inner freedom ... Really I feel much more human and natural on my own than when tied up in the routines of an institution.'

 

Thomas Merton, monk, hermit and writer, 1966

Nouwen

‘Contemplation is seeing everything and everyone through God’s eyes’ (Enzo Bianchi).

‘… this biography, both honest and lovingly appreciative, is as much a spiritual book as those Nouwen wrote... a toughly honest yet compassionate portrayal [which] provides in its own right much material for reflection on the relationship between human growth and the spiritual life.'
