More About this Book
This book begins with the scriptural passage from Matthew 20:20-23 in which Jesus asks Zebedee’s sons James and John if they can drink the cup that he is going to drink. Nouwen states this the great spiritual challenged posed to each of us: Can we drink the cup that Jesus drank? Can we hold our life, life our life and drink it as Jesus did?
