More About this Book
This is Henri Nouwen’s first book and addresses the central question of Nouwen’s life: “How can I find a creative and fulfilling intimacy in my relationship with God and my fellow human beings?” Nouwen explores the balance between intimacy and distance, the problems in trying to develop lasting and productive relationships on all levels, and the connections between intimacy and sexuality, prayer, faith, and the mental well-being of the minister. In Nouwen’s words: “It tries to deal directly… with our seldom articulated and often unrecognized desire for a real home in this world.”
