Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of The Return of the Prodigal Son, essential listening for Christians, Catholics, and all spiritual seekers.

You are no doubt familiar with beloved spiritual master Henri Nouwen, who published 40 highly influential books during his lifetime. Now you can glean additional insights from three edifying Nouwen works published posthumously.

Each session was carefully prepared by Dr. Michael Christensen, an award-winning professor of Christian ministry and practice, and Dr. Rebecca Laird, who was Nouwen’s student at Yale Divinity School. Each volume of The Nouwen Trilogy collects Nouwen’s unpublished homilies, interviews, classes, and speeches, as well as excerpts from his published writings. Editing these works into a definitive guide to the Christian life, Drs. Christensen and Laird memorialize his popular teachings.

Spiritual Formation: Following the Movements of the Spirit is part of this trilogy. Available for the first time in audio format, these convenient sessions move you through the five stages of spiritual development: awakening, purgation, illumination, dark night, and unification.

The audiobook is performed by Joe Abbey-Colborne, a veteran of pastoral ministry who played Nouwen in Gabrielle Earnshaw’s presentation Love, Henri: Letters on the Spiritual Life with the Henri Nouwen Society.

Another gem from Nouwen

How I treasure this work! Henri Nouwen is, of course, one of the best-loved spiritual teachers of the twentieth century, but here is something new by him! Of course it's not literally new, but a new title compiled out of previously untitled papers, speeches and lectures of this late master. Even though Nouwen is regarded as a Christian writer, his work speaks to seekers of spirituality from all traditions, and in this case he quotes from, for example, "Teachings of the Compassionate Buddha". I find him so open-minded and compassionate, and I love what he has to say about sorrow and joy here. Under sorrow he talks about loss: every kind of loss, from death to disenchantment. Wow. This is something special for everyone.

Simultaneously challenging and comforting

As always Henri Nouwen made me think and gave me encouragement. The section on death and dying I feel is very useful.
