OUT OF SOLITUDE Three Meditations on the Christian Life

by | Read by Paul Smith

Philosophy & Religion • 1 hr. • Unabridged • © 2004

Nouwen, a Catholic priest, has become known as a mystic teacher, penning much that crosses the traditional boundaries of world religions. Indeed, his controversial advocating of " centering" and contemplative prayer, along with other elements of Buddhist or Eastern mysticism, is a major part of his legacy. OUT OF SOLITUDE presents three meditations on Jesus's personal choices of solitude that call on modern religious people to consider incorporating solitude into their spiritual lives. Paul Smith voices the melancholy joy that undergirds much of the work without losing the necessary warmth that keeps the piece from becoming bleak. As he empathizes with the text, his voice serves as a friendly guide through the solitude and lonely places Nouwen lays bare. S.M.M. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
