The Spirituality of Henri Nouwen
The Spirituality of Henri Nouwen [SPIR 0670]
This course is about the spirituality of Henri Nouwen set against the background theme of spiritual journey. The main focus will be threefold: Nouwen’s integrated journey, his imperfect spirituality, and his integrated ministry.
First, the course provides a synthesis of Nouwen’s holistic approach to the nature of the inward, outward, and upward spiritual journey—one that integrates spirituality, psychology, ministry, and theology together in a seamless fashion. Second, it is an exploration of Nouwen’s spirituality of imperfection which he embodied throughout his lived experience—where the journey toward perfection is through the realities of imperfection. Finally, it is an overview of Nouwen’s ministry of soul care based upon his integrated yet imperfect spirituality.
