Throughout his life Henri Nouwen stressed the connection between intimacy with Christ and solidarity with a wounded world. From his early support for the civil right movement, through his engagement in the cause of peace, to his life with the handicapped members of the L'Arche community, Nouwen was always immersed with the social as well as the spiritual dimensions of the gospel. In gathering together Nouwen's many writings on peace and social justice, editor John Dear amplifies this crucial element of Nouwen's message about the call of Christian discipleship. At the same time, Nouwen calls on activists to be peacemakers in the fullest sense: to root their witness in prayer, joy, and a spirit of love. For all those who have read and treasured the life and work of Henri Nouwen, The Road to Peace is an inspiration, and a challenge to live our Christian lives with both love and action.
Throughout his life Henri Nouwen stressed the connection between intimacy with Christ and solidarity with a wounded world.This book includes a previously unpublished manuscript on peacemaking as well as stories of Nouwens participation in the March on Selma in 1965 and at the funeral of Martin Luther King, Jr. In other writings Nouwen reflects on the presence of Christ among the oppressed poor of Latin America, the legacies of Oscar Romero and Thomas Merton, and the lessons of the heart which he learned among his handicapped friends at LArche. The final pieces include a moving talk on compassion in the time of AIDS, and the call to solidarity with the human family.
