With Open Hands, Henri Nouwen's first book on spirituality and a treasured introduction to prayer, has been a perennial favorite for over thirty years because it gently encourages an open, trusting stance toward God and offers insight to the components of prayer: silence, acceptance, hope, compassion, and prophetic criticism. Provocative questions invite reflection and self-awareness, while simple and beautiful prayers provide comfort, peace, and reassurance. With over half a million copies printed in seven languages, this spiritual classic has been reissued for a new generation with moving photography and a foreword by Sue Monk Kidd.

This book is another classic from Nouwen. In it he discusses how true pray is an act of letting go and opening up. In the process we are healed by the one whom we feared might destroy us. He discusses the fear that individuals have against true prayer. What we fear to lose and what we fear to gain. Excellent book on Christian Spirituality.
