Fantastic Devotional Jan 4, 2007
Not a big devotional fan, but I spend multiple days on just one page of this one. I have purchased probably 12 copies so far and given them as gifts.
A Fine Daily Companion Jun 22, 2002
Henri Nouwen authored thirty five very inspirational books on the challenges of living life. Nouwen, a man often unsettled in his own life, offered a Jesus-centered perspective of his journey. This small book is a wonderful daily reader that draws on many of Nouwen's books. A great start to the day... or just the thing for a quick reflection along the way. Well worth the few dollars. Highly recommended.

Moving and captivating insights into Christian spirituality Jun 12, 2001
As I look at my copy, the pages all have highlighting, half are dog eared and all are folded in two after the third reading. Even some of the folded ones are also dog eared for still future reference. Charges Ringma, with the help of Nenri Nouwen's writings presents a captivating series of 180 "reflections" on the meaning of Christian spirituality. Nouwens's belief was when any human reveals his most vulnerable areas, he reaches all other persons at a very deep level. This book is an outstanding and moving example. Another belief was solitude, when used to increase our spirituality, is much more than just the current fad of seeking self development, but is the primary source of knowing how and where God desires us to apply Christ's teachings in our daily life. Then in each "reflection", he deals with all the personal conflicts one experiences in seeking solitude, experiencing solitude, hearing God's desires and when we then confront the realities of our personal lives. But mostly this book is looking on the personal spirituality side. See also Ringma's "Resist The Powers" which extends and expands in a remarkable and personal way our responsibility as a Christian in today's world (I'm only half way thru this already dog eared book)
