Item description for A Cry for Mercy: Prayers from the Genesee by Henri J. M. Nouwen...

Overview
A new edition of one of the spiritual writer's most powerful and personal volumes gathers prayers written during a six-month visit to a Trappist monastery and includes prayers of fear, mercy, hope, need, and gratitude. Reprint.

Publishers Description
A reissue of one of Henri Nouwen's most powerful and most personal books: prayers that "reveal a fearful heart, a cry for mercy, rays of hope, the power of the Spirit, the needs of the world, and finally gratitude."
In his continuing search for a deeper understanding of the spiritual life, Henri Nouwen traveled twice to the Trappist monastery in the Genesee Valley of upstate New York. His first visit inspired "The Genesee Diary," a moving account of his daily experiences and of contemporary monastic life. When he returned five years later, the familiar, comfortable daily rhythms of the contemplative life led him to concentrate his attention on meditation. He disciplined himself to write a prayer each day, an endeavor that became this extraordinary book.
In these daily prayers, Father Nouwen confronts his own inner chaos as he tries to create a space in his heart where God can dwell. Powerful, searching, and painfully honest, Nouwen's prayers, confessions, and petitions point to the final goal of all spiritual life: to live unceasingly in the presence of God. Like "The Wounded Healer "and "The Return of the Prodigal Son," "A Cry for Mercy" is filled with freshness and insight. It""speaks directly to the contemporary Christian's need for a meaningful spirituality, a disciplined inner life, and a real sense of the divine presence in everyday life.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Cry for Mercy: Prayers from the Genesee?

Humanity's prayers  Oct 26, 2000
Henri prays a human's prayer. He says what we all say in times of change, fear, anger, yet he says more! What a wonderful book to read when life/stability/comfort are turned upside down and pain, loss, homesickness, fear etc. are flooding over you and sweeping you away into darkness and chaos. This is a man's (Henri's) cry from his heart, soul, and mind. An incredible spiritual expression of the human condition.
