The way of the heart : desert spirituality and contemporary ministry by Henri J. M Nouwen( Book )

37 editions published between 1981 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,030 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since it was first published more than twenty years ago, The Way of the Heart has helped millions of men and women cast off the anger and greed that trouble the world - and find love, compassion, and peace in the heart of God. Inspired by the ancient teachings of St. Anthony and the Desert Fathers, The Way of the Heart clears before us a spiritual path consisting of three stepping-stones: Solitude (learning not to be alone but to be alone with God); Silence (the discipline by which the inner fire of God is tended and kept alive); and Prayer (standing in the presence of God with the mind in the heart). Distinguished theologian Henri Nouwen brilliantly illuminates each of these disciplines. In reflections that are beautifully clear and practical, as uplifting on the fourth reading as on the first, he helps us separate the wheat from the chaff in our spiritual lives - and reconnects us with what truly matters. Within this one small book lies the most relevant and inspiring challenge that we shall ever face: to surrender the compulsive noise of the world for the way of the heart that leads us to God."--Book description, Amazon.com

Creative ministry by Henri J. M Nouwen( Book )

27 editions published between 1971 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In separate sections on each of the five areas which he considers the primary responsibilities of the priest and minister -- teaching, preaching, counseling, organizing and celebrating -- the author shows how these professional duties are inextricably tied to the minister's own spiritual life, and explains why they must be directed towards a creative dialogue between minister and parishoner if they are to be rewarding. For each of these functions, he maintains, become true ministry only when the priest moves beyond his professional role and leaves himself open, takes risks and, in the words of the Gospel, "lays down his life for his friends" in order to give new life

"You cannot read Lifesigns and not be moved. This book will undoubtedly find its place among the classics of twentieth-century literature."--Grand Rapids Press The inspirational writings of Henri Nouwen have touched millions of readers all over the world. Much beloved as a lecturer, spiritual guide, and especially as an author, he communicated a profound message of hope that finds great resonance in today's world. In his now classic work Lifesigns, he explores what he saw as three of the most vital aspects of his ministry. The first of these is the Gospel invitation to intimacy, which Nouwen describes as communion with God and relationship with others. The second is the call to fecundity, exhorting us to be open to a fruitful life of change and growth. And the third, the experience of ecstasy, extends the Gospel promise "that your joy may be full." Inspired by L'Arche, the worldwide network of communities where handicapped people and their assistants try to live together in the spirit of the Scriptures, Nouwen shows how these three elements offer the essential key to a life free from the domination of fear and filled instead with hope and love

Clowning in Rome : reflections on solitude, celibacy, prayer, and contemplation by Henri J. M Nouwen( Book )

12 editions published between 1979 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A classic work by one of this century's most beloved spiritual writers now reissued. The inspirational writings of Henri Nouwen have touched millions of readers all over the world, and since his death in September 1996, widespread recognition of their enduring value has continued to grow. Now, after being unavailable for several years, Nouwen's Clowning in Rome is available again as an Image trade paperback. In this classic account of the time he spent in Rome, Nouwen offers reflections and spiritual insight characteristic of his best works. During the months in Rome, it wasn't the red cardinals or the Red Brigade who had the most impact on Nouwen, but the little things that took place between the great scenes. In some ways, Nouwen discovered, the real and true story was told by the clowns he often saw in the city streets. In his own words, from the Introduction to Clowning in Rome: "The clowns are not the center of events. They appear between the great acts, fumble and fall and make us smile again after the tensions created by the heroes we came to admire. The clowns don't have it together--they are awkward, out of balance and left-handed, but--they are on our side. The clowns remind us with a tear and a smile that we are sharing the same human weakness. The longer I was in Rome, the more I enjoyed the clowns, those peripheral people who by their humble, saintly lives evoke a smile and awaken hope, even in a city terrorized by kidnapping and street violence."
