Review quote

'I always knew I was in the presence of a spiritual master when I was with Henri Nouwen. Here are some simple, wise words that will allow the master to continue to teach." Richard Rohr, O.F.M., author of The Naked Now 'One of the book's many strengths is its integration of an area especially important to Nouwen, the contemplation of icons and other works of art - visio divina - in order 'to behold the beauty of the Lord'."Jim Forest, author of Praying with Icons and The Road to Emmaus
