Item Description...
The last book published before Nouwen's death in 1996, Can You Drink the Cup? has been translated into ten languages and sold more than 135,000 copies. Exploring the deep spiritual impact of the question Jesus asked his friends James and John, Nouwen reflects upon the metaphor of the cup, using the images of holding, lifting, and drinking to articulate the basics of the spiritual life. Written with the profound insight and clarity characteristic of his numerous best-selling books, Nouwen's deeply perceptive exploration of Jesus' challenging question has the power to pierce your heart, expand your spiritual horizons, and radically change your life.

Publishers Description
Explores the deep spiritual impact of the question Jesus asks his friends James and John. With stories from his family life and his life with people with mental disabilities, the author challenges us to drink our cup to the bottom, thereby letting it become the cup of our salvation.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Nouwen at his best  Jul 20, 2008
I own a number of Henri Nouwen's books and am proud to add this one to my collection. About half-way through reading it, I can say that it is certainly one of Father Nouwen's very best books.
If you are looking for inspiration, comfort, hope then you cannot fail to find them in this wonderful text.
Active and Contemplative, all in one challice... one vessel... on short book  Apr 8, 2008
This book looks like it is a simple, quick read. The layout is appealing, the words aren't smooshed onto the page and yet - there is such richness in the words, such complexity of heart, soul and spirit.... I read it through once and now revisit it, daily, for further insight.

Henri Nouwen is one of those authors I have read about but whose words I have never read in more than short quotes.

This book has made me into a fan.

My life is changing due to this book. It is one I can heartily recommend to anyone interested in living a more complete life, Christian or not Christian alike, the teachings are applicable across denominations and possibly even across faiths.

Nouwen walks his talk and can't help but take you along with him. I wish I could speak to him, to ask him questions.

Ahhhh, his other books will have to be enough.
Can you Drink the Cup  Feb 13, 2008
This was the best book I have read by Henri Nouwen. It is a book every Christian should read and ask the question "Can I Drink the Cup?"
I will read and reread this book and mail several to my family and friends.
Beneficial reading.  Dec 3, 2007
An easy read. Helped me to better understand that the sorrows and joys of one's life can also be blessings which we should lift up and celebrate.
Can You Drink The Cup  Oct 1, 2007
Excellent Book by Henri Nouwen. Read 3 Nouwen books at once and recommend his books for spiritual reading.
