Reviews - What do customers think about Here and Now: Living in the Spirit?

Ready to die...??  Apr 3, 2007
This short book provides an account of the author's near-death experience after injuries suffered in an accident. It was very interesting to read the progress of his emotional and spiritual condition - increasing closeness to God as he moved toward death. Later, when his physical condition turned around and he began to recover, he didn't feel any relief or thankfulness. Rather, he went into a state of grief and despair at being denied final union with God. Reading this account led me to think about how I would react in a similar situation. I'm not sure I would react in the same way at all... But death is something that comes to each of us in the end... Our days are numbered, but the number is uncertain. Perhaps we should strive toward being better prepared.
 
Did I miss something?  Feb 21, 2006
While this was an easy read and well written book, I felt like Nouwen kept repeating himself throughout. I don't doubt his experience and am happy for him that he found such peace and definition for his service in life. But as for myself, it did nothing to further my spirituality or make me feel comfortable or peaceful about death. This came highly recommended and I wound up speed-reading through the last third of the book to get through it.
 
A "Jewel" of spiritual books...  Oct 17, 2005
I've had this book for a while and always go back to it. I've recommended it to many friends as I am always glad that it was recommended to me. Well worth the read, guaranteed!
 
Be Still and Know that I AM  Nov 25, 2003
Henri Nouwen examines his life after a near death accident in which he encounters the Living God.

Facing the possibililty of dying he is able to let go and let God's unconditional love come to him and accept himself as God sees him.

His recovery from the accident brings about many changes in his attitude towards his family, friends, acquaintances and yes even his enemies. The experience brought resolve and forgiveness for his sins and the sins of others.

To come back to the living and take his daily cross was very difficult, since he had already prepared himself for the next life with Christ. To return to the former routine seemed impossible at that time but before long he had gone back to his former ways and was constantly trying to keep the peace that he had found during his illness.

Another book that touches on going to the mountain top and coming back would be "Hind's Feet on High Places" Hinds' Feet on High Places an allegory by Hannah Hurnard.
 
Preparing for Home  Dec 31, 2002
This book is different from many of Nouwen's other writings in that he presents lessons learned and spiritual reflections from a very specific event in his life (an almost fatal accident). As he often does, Nouwen delves deep into his own mind and shares his fears and deepest thoughts as he faced death. His thoughts on forgiveness "in the very end" for others and by others, caused me to give great consideration to how I daily forgive. If you fear death or are not "ready" for it, this book provides comforting thoughts for preparing for our real home.
