Item description for The Only Necessary Thing: Living a Prayerful Life by Henri J. M. Nouwen & Wendy Wilson Greer...

Wendy Greer, a dear friend of Henri Nouwen's, culled together the spiritual master's writings on prayer to offer a work that enriches our understanding of the practice of coming close to God. This collection offers profound nurturance for the spiritual life.

Publishers Description
Throughout the forty-some books that Henri Nouwen wrote and the hundreds of talks that he gave, the subject of Prayer runs through them all and unites them. For him a life of faith is a life of prayer. Drawn from many decades of his life, the compilation of Henri's thoughts, feelings, and the struggle with prayer, reveal the core of the man and his belief that prayer is the only necessary thing.

The Only Necessary Thing  Apr 26, 2008
This book by Henri Nouwen helped me to understand prayer in a way that I never had before. It is wonderful.
Well appreciated  Mar 11, 2008
As an avid reader of Henri Nouwen, I appreciate the care and integrity used in this compilation. I feel it gets at the sense of who Nouwen was and the sense of his spiritual journey. His compassion and humility shine through.
Working my Henri  Mar 8, 2008
I love this book. I found it in the midst of "a dark night of the soul" and I found it to be very inspirational. I was struggling with relationships and feeling hurt. Henri's writing helped me through that very difficult time. My friend and I joked that I was "working my Henri." I love that Henri is so real and so human. I love his passion. I give this book as a gift to people when I think they might need a little Henri.
The Only Necessary Thing: Living a Prayerful Life  Feb 23, 2008
What an incredible, intimate, and loving writer. Prayers, as the book highlighted, lead us not to dwell on self-pity and struggles of life, but to a new dwelling place, God's Heart, where all wounds can be healed and hopes for the brokenhearted. Your new name is God's Beloved, not Failure, not I Can't; even when our heart and strength fail, this book will lift us up to the unconditional love of God and the power given by Him to live a meaningful and peaceful life! There is so much more to be explored and experienced with the power of God in life. Henri Nouwen lived his life well and has left us a wonderful legacy of how to depend on God and not be afraid to pray for everything.
The Only Necessary Thing  Feb 17, 2007
Outstanding. This was written by a close friend of Henri Nouwen. She has done a wonderful job of collecting & editing. This book is a tribute to Nouwen, and will be a joy to read and use for meditation, perhaps during Lent.
