To be read and then picked up again and again.
on 18 March 2011
I have always held a deep admiration for Henri Nouwen through a number of his books that I've read and this one is no exception. It does, however, give the reader who is perhaps struggling with everyday life just a perfect insight into the inner mind when we are going through difficult times.
It is, in many ways, both uplifting and encouraging to read the complete honesty in which Henri speaks about the difficulties he is going through and to know that with persistent belief in the God of our own understanding we will come through the dark tunnel and emerge all the better for it.
A book to be picked up time and time again and any passage read in isolation to ponder over in stillness.
