Item description for Jean Vanier: Essential Writings (Modern Spiritual Masters) by Jean Vanier & Carolyn Whitney-Brown...

Overview
In 1964 Jean Vanier, a philosopher and former naval officer, moved into a dilapidated house with two companions to form the first L'Arche community. In time L'Arche grew into an international network of communities in which people with developmental disabilities and those who assist them share their lives together. Though Vanier's roots are Roman Catholic, the movement is deeply ecumenical, and his essential message of compassion, community, and the dignity and value of human life, strikes a universal chord. "We are healed by the poor and the weak, that we are transformed by them if we enter into relationship with them . . . they call us together, in unity and peace, to build community."

Publishers Description
In 1964 Jean Vanier, a philospher and former naval officer, moved into a dilappidated house with two companions and started the first L'Arche community. In time this grew into an international network of communities in which people with developmental disabilities and those who assist them share their lives together. Though Vanier's roots are Roman Catholic, the movement is deeply ecumenical, and his message of compassion, community, and his stress on the dignity and value of human life, has struck a universal chord. This collection of his essential writings, published to mark Vanier's 80th birthday, reflect the great discovery of his life: "that we are healed by the poor and the weak, that we are transformed by them if we enter into relationship with them, that the weak and the vulnerable have a gift to give to our world. . . they call us together, in unity and peace, to build community."

Jean Vanier
 
"I moved from the world of theories and ideas about human beings to discover what it really meant to be human..."  Sep 10, 2008
So says L'Arche founder Jean Vanier about his own spiritual journey (p. 29). son of one of Canada's first families, military man, and Ph.Ded philosopher, Vanier was accustomed to taking charge of his fellow humans when he was in proximity to them, and abstractly dissecting them when he was thinking about them. But his encounter with mentally and physically broken humans in the late 1950s, coupled with a growing spiritual restlessness, led him to a dramatic and dynamic life change. Ever since, Vanier has lived and written about the path of "downward mobility." In doing so, he (like Henri Nouwen) invites the rest of us to rethink our understanding of both our own life goals and God. He invites us to see vulnerability as a blessing rather than a liability, and to recognize that one of our greatest strengths, and one of God's greatest strengths, is precisely the weakness to allow ourselves to be touched by others.

Carolyn Whitney-Brown, who herself worked at a L'Arche community for the better part of a decade and knows Vanier personally, has put together an excellent collection of Vanier's essential writings and prefaced it with an informative Introduction. The writings focus on transforming the world, transforming the local community, transforming the self, and exploring the Christian life. They're written with a simplicity that can be deceptive. It's all too easy to dismiss Vanier as a simplistic thinker (another similarity with Nouwen). But in fact Vanier's writing tends to presuppose sophisticated arguments without belaboring them. His style is to write prose that invites meditation, rather than arguments that compel assent.

An excellent addition to the Modern Spiritual Masters series.
