This item received 5 stars overall. Sings the Richness of God's Love and Mercy

     I’ve never read a book by Henri Nouwen that I didn’t like, but this is definitely one of my favorites of his.  His literary prose, vivid imagery, and appreciation for art and beauty alone would make this work a pleasure to read.  The profound insights he has into the spiritual life and what he gleans from a very close study of a painting about a well-known Biblical story create a rich, thought-provoking work. 

     I have often been inspired to write after seeing/experiencing artwork and performances, but the enthusiasm and passion Nouwen possesses for the subject of mercy and forgiveness as it is portrayed in the painting show the inner workings of a soul that is close to God.  Certainly religious art has often inspired and been inspired by devout men and women of faith.  Nouwen&rsq Full Review...
