Item description for A Restless Soul: Meditations from the Road by Henri J. M. Nouwen & Michael Ford...
Overview These engaging selections gathered from Henri Nouwen's travel writings offer new insights into the restless soul of a deeply spiritual man. Whether Nouwen was describing the grim surroundings of post-Soviet Ukraine, mingling with senators in Washington, or meeting cocaine users in a South American prison, each situation tells a revealing story. Editor Michael Ford creates a journey from actual places Nouwen visited from the Ukraine to Bolivia via Europe, Canada, and the United States that depicts Nouwen's world as one of striking contrasts--one minute rubbing shoulders with the affluent, the next walking through lands of poverty. At each destination, we discover a man whose endless search for intimacy and beauty resonates deeply with our own.
