The Way of the Heart by Henri J.M. Nouwen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
solitude. silence. and prayer. thus is the way of to be shaped by the Spirit, not by the world. Nouwen challenges us to live these three practices - and he outlines why and how with great detail - so as to become one with God, to have our heart melted and molded into the very heart of God.
life is full of busyness and chaos. i desperately desire times of solitude, silence and prayer. i think that is why i was drawn to this book.
some profound headers found in this book:
Solitude: the furnace of transformation
Silence teaches us to speak
Prayer of mind
Prayer of heart
Prayer of ministry: short prayers; unceasing prayers
Nouwen shows how simple faith should be and how we muddy the waters with our own ideas that are not God ideas (more often than not).
