Item Description...
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 them. In this new anthology, Michael Ford gathers Nouwen selections to guide you through the darkness, loneliness, and turmoil of life's tough challenges. Whether you are already familiar with Nouwen's work or reading him for the first time, you will find spiritual refreshment and encouragement in The Dance of Life.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
life-changing  Nov 5, 2008
It would be difficult to read this book and not come away from it humbled, inspired and satisfied. It is not to be read as a book per se, but rather a compilation of essays to which one could refer back to again and again.
Gems from Nouwen  Jul 31, 2008
I've been a Nouwen fan for several months now, having graduated from Merton's Sign of Jonas to Nouwen's Road to Gennessee. Have thoroughly enjoyed his journals and have been touched by his openness and honesty. He is quick to mention his struggles and shortcomings--something we don't often think of when we think of well-known contemplatives and spiritual giants here on earth!

The Dance of Life contains numerous nuggets of spiritual wisdom from books I've yet to read. I'm reading it a bit each night, taking one or two selections as something of a devotional. Don't let the title fool you: there isn't much sorrow, or darkness, only real-life spirituality.
Dance of Life Makes an Excellent Lenten Study  Mar 24, 2007
My church used Dance of Life, Henri Nouwen's works compiled by editory Michael Andrew Ford, as basis for an adult program during Lent. Lay people were able to facilitate discussion of different sections of the book easily.
Review of Dance of Life  Mar 8, 2007
Excellent, as is anything that comes from the writings of Nouwen (who continues to write even though he is dead!!)
Life-Changing  Jan 9, 2007
This book changed my life. I was so engrossed that I read it in the course of one very intense day - a day filled with insights, with a sense of wonder and beauty and of God's all-sustaining love. It is a book that I will keep returning to for many years.

This is the sort of book that I want to buy a thousand copies of to hand out at street corners. Especially poignant are Nouwen's insights on intimacy, acceptance, and prayer.

The real beauty of Nouwen's teaching is his incredibly accepting and open approach to the self - where we are to celebrate our individuality and to incorporate even our failings and negative emotions into our understanding of ourselves.
