Intimacy, Fecundity, & Ecstasy In Christian Perspective
Visiting with Jean Vanier and the L'Arche community in France, Nouwen finds in the small society of the handicapped a paradigm for a society governed by fear: "The agenda of the world...is an agenda of fear and power." Detailing the extent to which fear wields its destructive power in our lives, he points to the way that frees us from living as captives in the house of fear and makes it possible for us to move into the house of love.
