Drawing on three moments in the life of Jesus, Henri Nouwen invites us to reflect on the tension between our desire for solitude and the demands of contemporary life. He reminds us that it was in solitude that Jesus found the courage to follow God's will. And he shows us that fruitful love and service must spring from a living relationship with God. Beautifully written, elegantly simple, Out of Solitude is as fresh today as it was thirty years ago.

If you want a short book that is a deep dive into Henri Nouwen's richly honest and authentically Christian spiritual world, this is a good choice. Few authors have helped me as much as Henri Nouwen especially with reconciling the suffering in life with a God who is our loving Father,and learning genuine Christian expression of love in our world.  The forward by Thomas Moore is not helpful and does not add to the book, but fortunately is not too much of a distraction from Henri's words.
