With the clarity and depth characteristic of the classics, this spiritual bestseller lays out a perceptive and insightful plan for living a spiritual life and achieving the ultimate goal of that life — union with God.
Nouwen views our spiritual “ascent” as evolving in three movements. The first, from loneliness to solitude, focuses on the spiritual life as it relates to the experience of our own selves. The second, from hostility to hospitality, deals with our spiritual life as a life for others. The final movement, from illusion to prayer, offers penetrating thoughts on the most mysterious relationship of all: Throughout, Nouwen emphasizes that the more we understand and not simply deny our inner struggles, the more fully we will be able to embrace a prayerful and genuine life that is also open to others’ needs.

Reaching Out | Living Theology | John B. MacDonald
Please try again later. This book has made a profound impact on my life. I’ve read thousands of books in my eighteen year academic journey, but few have nouwej an impact as this one “A Tale of Three Kings” by Gene Edwards is the other.
Henri Nouwen has a way with words. He frames concepts in an extraordinary way. He sees human suffering with unusual insight and grace. He is a gifted thinker, no jouwen, and writes with exceptional clarity. I can’t say enough about this little book. Through academia, I’ve learned to read 30 pages per hour, but here every hour I read 3 pages.
It was that profound.
Henri Nouwen-Reaching Out
If you have experienced trauma, broken relationships, betrayal, loneliness, doubt, shattered faith, or disillusionment with church people, then this book is for you. Nouwen has taught me to see relationships in a different light.
And he has given me answers and solutions for resolving trauma in my own life and in the lives of others. It is not a heavy read but is immensely profound. It shows that one does not need to write complex to be intellectually moving. Every Christian needs to read this book in order to understand the nature of relationships and God’s plan for fellowship with one another. I highly recommend it. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.
Classic Nouwen narrative that knits together deep spiritual truths with practical habits for living in a broken and often hostile world.
Provoking, challenging and encouraging. The thread that runs throughout the book responds to the question, “What does it mean to live a life in the Spirit of Jesus Christ? This book stimulated discussion and growth in our weekly spirit group.
The three movements are: Key is this quote: When we have the courage to let these realities come to our full attention, understand them and confess them, then they can slowly be converted into solitude, hospitality and prayer.
I have read some of Nouwen’s work before, and this is one of his best. My daughter spoke of this book as she was reading it for a study she was doing at the Christian school where she works, and I bought a copy as she was using hers. In the middle section, while speaking to everyone, he addresses parents, teachers, and professionals.
I’d say more, but you really need to read it yourself. This is a book that, read carefully, has the potential to change how you function as a result of your faith. This is my second order of 7 or more books. The first time I read the book I loved it so much that I bought some to give away. My current order is for a book study with women. I shared with them how much I love Henri Nouwen’s Reaching Out and the 3 movements of gaining inner peace with self and a deeper spiritual relationship with God that gives us the genuine ability to have hospitality for others.
I guess my excitement won them over. I also use this book in my counseling with people who have addictions, mental health and tram concerns.
Each step of our journey home again is to be shared focusing on Our Lord Jesus Christ within us. Our heart,mind and soul reach out to ourselves, our world and our God. God is already there This philosophy book was written for people to actually understand and use. With powerful practical concepts, profound ideas are expanded from a personal to an all encompassing level. It is so good to have such a positive, thoughtful study during these turbulent days.
