This is Draft 1. It has pages from a different (earlier?) draft inserted (pages 1 and 149).
Pages from text are missing: 135, part of bibliography.
Page 90 handwritten and inserted later.
Text includes annotations by Nouwen and two unknown hands [one is possibly Dwight Norwood].
This text appears to build upon the article published by Nouwen in 1968 of the same name. This text was possibly for a book that Nouwen was writing on Anton T. Boisen [first line: "This is a book..."].
