Recently picked up this book and basically couldn't put it down. This was a great examination of what compassion means. Written decades ago, its message is possibly more pertinent in today's world filled with violence, but increasingly connected via advances in technology. These advances make understanding easier, but compassion harder and this reflection by Nouwen et al. is a thought-provoking treatment of this essential human trait.

A provocative essay that places compassion at the heart of Christian life as a counterbalance and a challenge to a world governed far too long by principles of power and destructive control.
