Item Description...
A gift-sized edition of the best-selling inspirational guide outlines a spiritual path that considers the virtues of solitude, silence, and prayer, sharing the author's reflections on how to reconnect with the things that really matter in a life. Reprint.

Publishers Description
Since it was first published more than twenty years ago, "The Way of the Heart" has helped millions of men and women cast off the anger and greed that trouble the world-and find love, compassion, and peace in the heart of God.
Inspired by the ancient teachings of St. Anthony and the Desert Fathers, "The Way of the Heart" clears before us a spiritual path consisting of three stepping-stones: Solitude (learning not to be alone but to be alone with God); Silence (the discipline by which the inner fire of God is tended and kept alive); and Prayer (standing in the presence of God with the mind in the heart).
Distinguished theologian Henri Nouwen brilliantly illuminates each of these disciplines. In reflections that are beautifully clear and practical, as uplifting on the fourth reading as on the first, he helps us separate the wheat from the chaff in our spiritual lives-and reconnects us with what truly matters.
Within this one small book lies the most relevant and inspiring challenge that we shall ever face: to surrender the compulsive noise of the world for the way of the heart that leads us to God.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A really interesting book  Feb 17, 2007
This book is about how people who are engaged in active work to help others also need to spend time in prayer with God so that they can be more peaceful and more in touch with who they are and who they need to be.
nobody  Jan 3, 2007
This is a book that should be required reading in highschool or maybe earlier.
Disappointing...  Apr 28, 2006
Had I previously investigated the author and the content, I wouldn't have purchased WOTH. Nouwen draws heavily from the "Desert Fathers," a group of hermits who lived in a Middle Eastern wilderness during the Middle Ages. They based their philsophy and practice of spirituality not only on the Bible (which is why I awarded two stars instead of one) but from eastern mysticism, Hinduism, and Buddhism. If you want to learn more about the beliefs of these mystics, it's an excellent sourcebook. As a reformational Christian, there wasn't much in this book I can recommend to those seeking to know the God of the Bible.
Beautifully written  Jan 15, 2004
Hernri J.M. Nouwen writes with a deep understanding of the Desert Fathers and thier fundamental beliefs. He illustrates how to use thier knowledge of solitude, silence and prayer in simple ways to apply to our daily lives. It is in itself a great comfort to read. For those who are trobled, in any kind of situation, the practices that he describes offers the light of hope.
Peace  Aug 18, 2002
This tiny volume whispers truth to the soul suffering from spiritual clamor. Take and read, drink in slowly, and absorb the peace.
