What's the secret to living a spiritual life? So much is happening in our world that we often get distracted and listen to voices other than the voice of God. "If we want to be disciples of Jesus, we have to live a disciplined life," Nouwen asserts. In the spiritual life, discipline requires conscious effort to keep every area in life from being filled up. It means creating space in our life for God to act and speak. Nouwen identifies 3 essential disciplines for maintaining a life of discipleship: solitude, community, and ministry. In solitude we learn to listen to God through prayer. We realize that we are beloved sons and daughters of God. In community we learn to celebrate, as well as to practice vulnerability and forgiveness. After we have experienced solitude and community, we feel God's call to minister to a hurting world. God empowers us to do amazing things. This encouraging, insightful book will inspire you to practice solitude, community, and ministry. The result, Nouwen promises, is a fruitful, Spirit-filled life.

"To take care of each other should be our primary concern in this 21st century and Father Dear is steady on this course." --Thich Nhat Hanh For John Dear, a Jesuit priest and respected leader of the ecumenical peace movement, the spiritual life is a combination of contemplation and action, of maintaining inner peace and projecting that peace into the greater world. It is the spirituality exemplified by the lives of Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., Mother Teresa, the Dalai Lama, and others throughout history who remained true to the highest ideals while addressing the most difficult problems and conflicts of the real world. As a tireless advocate for social justice and human rights, Dear has followed that path in his own life, and in Living Peace he describes his journey. Breaking down the life of peace into three parts an inner journey, a public journey, and the journey of all humanity he shares the spiritual practices that have sustained him and teaches readers how to integrate these practices into their own lives.

“[We] read Nouwen…to discover new possibilities in our faith.” —New Review of Books and Religion A profound and beautiful collection of intimate writings, Henry J.M. Nouwen’s Letters to Marc About Jesus recalls the author’s correspondences with his teenage nephew, a boy struggling with issues of faith and spirituality in an apathetic age. The much-beloved author of The Wounded Healer and With Open Hands—named alongside such notables as C.S. Lewis and Thomas Merton as one of the most important Christian writers of the 20th century—Nouwen writes from the heart in the deeply personal Letters to Marc About Jesus, as he imparts a powerful wisdom born of an unassailable faith.

At one time, spirituality was linked entirely to religion. And, if you claimed to be spiritual, it simply meant that you were religious. Today, you can hear some people saying, "I'm not religious, but I am spiritual." Truth is, you can be spiritual whether you are religious or not. Because, spirituality does not depend on your beliefs. Understand it all here in this book.

Spirituality for Everyday Living is a practical resource for people who seek to be "in the world but not of it". It is for individuals or reflection groups who seek God through the qualities of ordinary life. This book takes as its model the monastic Rule of St. Benedict with its balance of prayer, conversion of life, commitment, study, work, relationships, and solitude.

Recommended readings from the Rule are listed at the end of each section of this book. (back cover).

What does it mean to live a spiritual life? How can one become more spiritual? In this book Saint offers his own answers to these questions and outlines how one can become more 'spiritually cultivated'. He places great importance on the distinction between the 'private moments' and the 'non-private moments' in one's life, and is particularly concerned with the link between spirituality and the way that a person acts in 'private moments'. He also envisions a central role for the feelings that exist within one and how these interact both with one's thoughts and the thoughts and feelings of other people.
