Book Review: The Way of the Heart by Henri Nouwen

desert-books

This was a life changing book for me.

Nouwen discusses three of the disciplines of the Desert fathers and mothers, solitude, silence and prayer.

The purpose of the book can be summed up in the following quote, “Our compulsive, wordy and mind-oriented world has a firm grip on us, and we need a very strong and persistent discipline not to be squeezed to death by it.”
