What's the secret to living a spiritual life? Living a disciplined life, according to Henri Nouwen.

In the spiritual life, discipline requires conscious effort to keep every area of life from being filled - it means creating space for God. Nouwen identifies 3 essential disciplines for maintaining a life of discipleship: solitude, community, and ministry.

This encouraging, insightful book inspires readers to practice all 3 disciplines. The result, Nouwen promises, is a fruitful, Spirit-filled life.

Flap copy

"I know introverts who give priority to solitude. I know others who find strength in community. And I know busy colleagues in ministry who find time for neither solitude or community. In his life, and now in his words, Henri Nouwen brings all three together solitude, community, ministry in a triad of spiritual health."

Philip Yancey, author of many books, including "What Good Is God?" and "What's So Amazing About Grace?"

"I knew Henri personally, and like few friends, he knew how to say 'pious' things in a profound way, seemingly impersonal things in a personal way, and offer serious challenges in a way that made you say, 'Thank you!' He does it again in this fine book."

Richard Rohr, OFM, Center for Action and Contemplation, Albuquerque, New Mexico
