Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“On the long road its good to have Nouwen and his divining rod. Deftly he bends toward the drop of spiritual wisdom caked in the most ordinary things.”
—Helen Prejean, C.S.J., author of Dead Man Walking

 

In his classic work Intimacy, Henry J.M. Nouwen, one of the most beloved spiritual writers of the 20th century, explores the pathway to a more creative and fulfilling intimacy in our relationship with God. A wise and optimistic guide to the complexities and rewards of the fully developed inner life, Intimacy stands alongside The Wounded Healer, With Open Hands, Making All Things New, and Nouwens other notable works, as well as the writings of C.S. Lewis, Thomas Merton, and other influential Christian scholars and thinkers.

Synopsis:

Writing from his vast experience as a pastoral counselor, beloved writer Henri Nouwen addresses the basic question, "How can I find a creative and fulfilling intimacy in my relationship with God and my fellow human beings?" He offers a thoughtful exploration of the balance between intimacy and distance; the problems in developing lasting and productive relationships; and the connections between intimacy and sexuality, prayer, faith, and the mental well-being of the minister.

Synopsis:

Is love a possibility within our reach?

"We probably have wondered in our many lonesome moments if there is one corner in this competitive, demanding world where it is safe to be relaxed, to expose ourselves to someone else, and to give unconditionally. It might be very small and hidden. But if this corner exists, it calls for a search through the complexities of our human relationships in order to find it."
— from Intimacy

Writing from his vast experience as a pastoral counselor, Henri Nouwen addresses the basic question, "How can I find a creative and fulfilling intimacy in my relationship with God an my fellow human beings?" He conducts a rich and insightful exploration into the balance between intimacy and distance, the problems in trying to develop lasting and productive relationships on all levels, and the connections between intimacy and sexuality, pray, faith, and the mental well-being of the minister. Intimacy is an essential resource for anyone struggling to grasp the profound implications of this most basic human needs.
