Publishers Description

With a new foreword from Nouwen friend and author Christopher de Vinck, this book follows Nouwen during a Holy Week retreat when he desired to write about the Sacred Heart. As his words took shape, he instead spoke directly to the heart of Jesus. Heart Speaks to Heart shares Nouwen's view of his own faithful, but often painful, journey to the Lord. A prologue and epilogue shares Nouwen's own account on the creation of this book, which was inspired by a friend's devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Heart Speaks to Heart: Three Gospel Meditations on Jesus  May 13, 2007
Once again, I am pleased with the service from this site and with the writing of Henri Nouwen. The book arrived p romptly and in good condition. I thought I had responded but I evidently did not. Sorry!
 
Immense Wisdom  Jan 27, 2007
Heart Speaks to Heart, a classic since its publication in 1989, has been repackaged as part of a collection of Nouwen titles. For those unfamiliar with this work, it is composed of three meditations Nouwen wrote during Holy Week as he spoke to (not "about") the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The thing about Nouwen is that he expresses a raft of human weaknesses while demonstrating an overwhelming desire to come ever closer to Jesus. The wisdom and hope he offers those who enter his meditations in "Heart" are immense. His style, placing himself in the gospel narrative, is compelling. In the meditation on Holy Thursday he resists Jesus' attempt to wash his feet, then recognizes that he can claim the Savior's boundless love by simply letting go of his fears, distrust, and anguish.

As we listen to Nouwen speak to Jesus, we find relevance in his struggles and encouragement in his prayer: "Help me close the many doors and windows of my heart through which I flee from you or through which I give entry to words and sounds coming not from you, but from a raging, screaming world that wants to pull me away form you."

This new carry-along edition of "Heart Speaks to Heart" is designed for praying over and over, alone or with others.
