To be Born is to be Chosen taken from Anam…
Henri Nouwen, who died in 1996,was one of the most outstanding spiritual leaders of recent times. A priest, academic and author of over forty books, many of which remain in print, his ministry found a new depth of expression when he joined L’Arche, the community founded by Jean Vanier for people with profound learning disabilities. Living and working among them, the themes he had explored in his writing and speaking took on a deeper resonance.
This book and CD package is created from an interview he gave some fifteen years ago. Never previously broadcast or transcribed, we hear Henri Nouwen’s distinctive voice in conversation about the themes that inspired most of his writing. The book shows this conversation to be studded with gems of spiritual wisdom that merit slow, contemplative reading. With suggestions for reflection or discussion, Beloved is a perfect accompaniment for an individual or group retreat as well as for personal listening and reading.
