This is a well written, easy to read, lesson about life. Set aside the 'communion' lesson for this book. This is not all about communion. This book asks the question Are You Ready to Live? It tells how one can see, experience, and take life for everything it has to offer, good and not so good, and prepares the reader for it. Will you gulp life and miss out on much of it? Will you sip, appreciate, and experience? This is a MUST READ and one I will read again and again.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Since finding this little book quite by accident in an abby in the coastal foothills of Oregon in 2001, the experience of communion has not been the same since. As with most of Nouwen's writings, there may not be many pages, but the economy of paper allows the profound, rich, thoughtful, life-transforming messages to keep expanding throughout one's soul. Before anyone tastes the bread and wine again, they need to read this book...and the impact of the tastes and the action of holding, lifting and drinking the cup will never be the same for the rest of one's life. I could not recommend it more highly.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
