Superb Lenten Reading

A Review of

A Spirituality of Homecoming

Henri Nouwen

Paperback: Upper Room Books, 2012
Buy now:  [ Amazon ]  [ Kindle ]

Reviewed by Jon Wymer

 

I must sheepishly admit that Henri J. M. Nouwen’s A Spirituality of Homecoming is my first direct reading of the acclaimed spiritual leader. It will not be my last. This 64-page booklet is an adaptation of Lenten talks given by Nouwen in 1985. For me it was a pleasantly surprising journey, clearly centered in Christian theology yet evocative of significant connection to life under the sun.

 

Whether or not I can now clearly articulate my assumptions picking up Homecoming, it was refreshing for this 21st century pastor to find something I certainly was not expecting: the unlikely marriage of being-a-disciple and home. I say “unlikely marriage” because it feels so often in the parish as if the costly demands of being a disciple are lost in the face of the prior stronger commitment many of us have to home and family. Nouwen does not force the concepts together in some artificial way. Rather he shows how they naturally belong together: “We find our way home to the heart by following Jesus.”

Poem of the Day: St. Francis De Sales  by William Edward Heygate

“The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing… not healing, not curing… that is a friend who cares.”  – Henri Nouwen, born on this day in 1932

“Another unsettling element in modern art is that common symptom of immaturity, the dread of doing what has been done before.”
Novelist, Edith Wharton, born on this day in 1862

686122: Spiritual Formation A Review of:

Spiritual Formation

By Henri J.M. Nouwen
Hardback: HarperOne, 2010.

Reviewed by Kevin Book-Satterlee.

[ Read the poem that the reviewer wrote
to accompany this review… ]

Michael J. Christensen and Rebecca J. Laird have produced a second compilation (in a series of three books) of Nouwen’s works entitled Spiritual Formation:  Following the Movements of the Spirit.  Christensen and Laird pull pieces from a variety of Nouwen’s previously published and some unpublished pieces to create this seamless book as though Nouwen himself had penned it.

Christensen and Laird’s compilation is a pillar for understanding the process of spiritual formation against the grain of a progress-oriented culture.  Christensen, in the appendix, describes how Nouwen’s concept of spiritual formation is not progressive and linear, but rather a journey of progressive vacillation.  “The journey implies that progress is possible, but not in a measurable upward way, with cumulative results” (129).
