The Dance of Life: Weaving Sorrows and Blessings into One Joyful Step

The Dance of Life: Weaving Sorrows and Blessings into One Joyful StepHenri J.M. Nouwen, edited by Michael Andrew Ford. (Ave Maria Press, Notre Dame, IN 2005, Darton, Longman & Todd, London, UK 2005, 219 pages)

At the heart of Henri Nouwen's theology is the idea that the spiritual life is a process of embracing our imperfections and finding the transforming power of God at work within us. In The Dance of Life, editor Michael Ford gathers and arranges selections from Nouwen's writings as a young psychology lecturer, a professor, and from his prolific days at L'Arche. Nouwen's profound insights into spiritual development highlight the struggle to achieve a deeper relationship with God and his words will help guide readers through the darkness, loneliness, and turmoil of life's challenges.
