It's likely the men and women introduced in this series would not call themselves ''Modern Spiritual Masters,'' yet there's no doubt their lives, their work and their words have acted as both companion and guide to many a modern seeker of truth. As readers we enter the community of faith each time we pick up a good book, transcending the boundaries of space and time through our interaction with the writer and his vision. The authors represented here are part of that larger community -- their words are ways toward communion and grace, even friendship. Along with selections from their writings, the books in this series include helpful (and rather absorbing) introductions that relate the special influence each has had on contemporary spirituality through the particular struggles presented by the twentieth century. With that, we had best let them speak for themselves.
An Eighth Day View:
This intimate selection of Nouwen's spiritual writings on themes of faith and solidarity with a wounded world includes a substantial introduction by the man himself.
