A Spirituality of Waiting
A Spirituality of Waiting
by Henri J. M. Nouwen
Edition: Audio Cassette

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing meditaion on the spiritual life, 18 Sept. 2002
This incredible tape is a recording of Henri Nouwen talking about his spiritual perspectives on waiting.
The talk is divided into two parts. In the first, Fr Nouwen talks about how much of our lives is out of our control - where we're born, family circumstances, health. He talks of the need to be able to fulfill ourselves as human beings even when we are not in control of everything in our lives. He relates this to how Jesus was handed over to the authorities, and from then on ws almost completely passive, yet He fulfilled His vocation on the Cross.
In the second part, we hear of how in a sense God then waits on us, because He has shown His huge love for us, and is now waiting for us to respond to it!
I loved hearing Nouwen expressing these ideas on tape himself. One can hear his incredible conviction and that everything comes from his on difficult experiences of life.
This tape is profoundly moving, and has had a huge effect on me. I have played it again and again, and cannot reccommend it highly enough. Anyone who has read his other books will love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Prayer Book of Prayer Books!, 7 Sept. 2002
The Divine Office is the best available prayer book for those who want to be united in prayer with the universal Church, but don't want to have to carry a book, a Bible and a lectionary as well.
Though it is produced by the Roman Catholic Church, it is a God-send for anyone who wants a user-friendly book including Morning and EVening Prayer and the other litrugical Hours of the day.
The psalms and readings are immediately spiritual, and the book is a joy to use.
For those who don't have time to pray all the hours, Morning and Evening Prayer are published separately under that name.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this amazing book and treat yourself to a great story., 6 Jan. 2001
This amazing vision from C.S. Lewis is still extremely relevant to all today. Not only does it make you confront your own beliefs in a most natural way, but it is clever enough to do this behind a wonderful story. This book becomes more and more appropriate, and should be read by everybody. Read it!
