Scope and content
Item consists of a book which originated as a seminar Nouwen held at Yale Divinity School on the spirituality of the desert and then as Convocation lectures at Perkins School of Theology in Dallas and at the National Convention of Pastoral Counselors in Denver. The book has been divided into the following: Prologue; Solitude; Silence; Prayer; Epilogue; Notes.
As is stated on the back cover of the book: . . . ."Solitude shows us the way to let our behavior be shaped not by the compulsions of the world but by our new mind, the mind of Christ. Silence prevents us from being suffocated by our wordy world and teaches us to speak the Word of God. Finally, unceasing prayer gives solitude and silence their real meaning. . . . The 'way of the heart' leads us not only to a fuller encounter with God but also to a more creative relationship with our fellow human beings."
