Corbin, October 21, 2014 (view all comments by Corbin)
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.
