The Genesee diary: report from a Trappist monastery

The item consists of a book which Nouwen wrote about the seven months he spent at the Abbey of the Genesee in upstate New York during 1974.

As is stated in the front flap: "Participating fully in the life of the monastery by working in the bakery, helping in the construction of a new chapel, and following the daily hours of prayer, Nouwen brought many typical human experiences and questions to his spiritual director: questions about the aim of the contemplative life and the place of prayer and politics in his life, but also feelings of impatience, jealousy, and self-depreciation, excitement over new spiritual insight, and struggle with the subtle difficulties of allowing Jesus Christ to be the center of his existence."
