Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wellspring of Inspiration  Dec 8, 2007
Eternal Seasons editor Michael Ford, a BBC writer/producer, interviewed Henri Nouwen for a TV show in 1992. He later took a leave of absence to write "Wounded Prophet: A Portrait of Henri J.M. Nouwen," published in 1999. As he gathered material, Ford discovered a batch of old sermons "on a range of liturgical themes" in the Nouwen archives. That discovery, and Nouwen's "immeasurable" influence on him, led to development of "Eternal Seasons." The book is divided into nine liturgical sections, each made up of a short introduction by Ford followed by passages from Nouwen's work that convey the spirit of the season. Reflections for feast days are also included.

We examine the seasons as a path Nouwen found for his own spiritual journey, especially when he was confronted with difficulties. In describing that first TV interview and later in the book, Ford emphasizes Nouwen's conviction that "The spiritual life is a constant choice to let your negative experiences become an opportunity for conversion or renewal." The Dutch priest explains several "polarities" that we must all struggle to balance: joy and darkness; hope and despair; faith and doubt.

These themes and the painstaking way in which Ford has selected, organized, and presented the passages offer a wellspring of inspiration for individuals and groups, used as is or in conjunction with lectionary readings.
Henri Nouwen and the Church Calendar  Oct 29, 2007
This you'll want to keep handy to check out throughout the year. It won't give you details as to the church calendar day being recognized. But if you like Henri Nouwen's writings, you'll like the ordering of excerpts from his writings revolving around the year. And if you want more info on the entry, the internet will give you details.
