  • As a spiritual icon, Henri Nouwen continues to exert a powerful influence on the religious landscape. This important new book compares the contrasting tendencies of integration and imperfection that, respectively, defined Nouwens approach to spiritual formation and his life. The author demonstrates convincingly that these opposing tendencies in Nouwens approach to spiritual formation and to his lived spirituality form the core of his lingering influence in our postmodern age. Hernandez synthesizes Nouwens integrated approach to spiritual formationone that weaves spirituality, psychology, ministry, and theology in a seamless fashion. He goes on to explore Nouwens counterintuitive and countercultural spirituality of imperfection, in which the journey to perfection inevitably leads through the realities of imperfection. By describing, analyzing, and synthesizing Nouwens writings, Hernandez demonstrates that Nouwens integrative pursuit of the spiritual life and its formation is grounded in his own experience of spiritual imperfection. In Henri Nouwen: A Spirituality of Imperfection, the author demonstrates how one imperfect saint continues to affect the spiritual climate in ways that are ecumenical and, most importantly, countercultural.
