THE SPIRITUAL LIFE

by Henri Nouwen (Harper One $27.99)

Eight of the more than 40 books written by Nouwen are considered classic and essential, and are contained in this single volume. Together they make a splendid introduction to his instructive ways of seeking spirituality. He stresses the necessity of seeking a place for contemplative solitude to listen for the voice of God. Further, he emphasizes the necessity of joining other Christians seeking truth. Most interesting are his letters to his nephew Marc, his sister’s son, 18 at the time that embraces the heart of his spirituality. This is an inspiring book, to be given and to receive. 

 

THE GREAT GOOD THING

By Andrew Klavan (Thomas Nelson Book $24.99)

From Secular Jew, to Atheist, to Christian: What a ride for Klavan, author of award-winning novels that became popular movies: “True Crime”, filmed by Clint Eastwood, “Don’t Say A Word,” starring Michael Douglas among others. Klavan’s description of growing up with a grandfather who read books to him is a delight and his finding faith in Christianity is inspiring.
