Discover Henri Nouwen's authentic, spacious spirituality of being deeply beloved.
Henri Nouwen’s compelling spirituality of the heart is at once simple and complex, accessible but deeply profound. For this Catholic theologian, whose ecumenical writings continue to inspire Christians of all denominations and levels of involvement, spirituality is, at its most basic, simply ‘attention to the life of the spirit in us’.
Wil Hernandez’s sensitive distillation of Nouwen’s vast literary legacy invites us to take courage and be still, creating space for God and our true selves. It is in this place of trust and solitude that we discover our belovedness and our capacity to love God and others.
A scholar and spiritual director intimately acquainted with Nouwen’s understanding of the spiritual life, Wil Hernandez offers an elegant synthesis of Nouwen’s main themes, inspiring us to embrace the power and vulnerability of mere spirituality.
Wil Hernandez, PhD, Obl. OSB, teaches courses on the spirituality of Henri Nouwen at seminaries and universities throughout the United States of America and abroad. He is the author of a Henri Nouwen trilogy and the founder and Executive Director of CenterQuest.
