New. Henri Nouwen has always been the most popular author in the ''Spiritual Life'' section of our store. Which doesn't necessarily mean he's the best, but it does say something about his extraordinary accessibility and appeal across confessional lines. But we will say more: Nouwen probably wrote too many books, but at times, he can be simply excellent. This book--one of his earliest--is one example. Writing honestly and vulnerably, as always, out of his own struggle to live authentically in Jesus Christ, he summarizes the Christian way as transforming loneliness into solitude, moving beyond hostility to hospitality, and from illusion to prayer (a section of the book that contains a fine introduction to ''the prayer of the heart''). The simplest can read this book, the wisest will profit from it, only the proud will disdain it. 165 pp.
