7 books finished in 2016: The Way of the Heart

7 books finished in 2016

I did not care for this book.

Which is frustrating because 1) it was given as a gift, meant for encouragement, to the small group leaders in our church, 2) I tend to appreciate Henri Nouwen, or think I will, and 3) when I search for reviews of this book, they are predominantly positive.

I think I’m outside the intended audience of contemplative, scholarly, ministry-oriented (introverted?) folks who perhaps need a reminder, or permission, to step away and be alone in thought and prayer from time to time. At another stage of my life, I might crave solitude and silence, but right now, I feel like I have plenty of both.
