The voice of the Master Feb 13, 2008
I was reading a summary of Nouwen's writings, and the author suggested Henri Nouwen was more a speaker than a writer, and that one could hear some of his lectures on CD. This one is excellent. His Dutch accent is not overwhelming. The only disadvantage is there are not a lot of "breaks" in the CD, so if you need to stop and return later, you may have to repeat quite a bit to get to where you left off. The talk was given to clergy, but applies to lay ministry as well.
