It challenges me to find the 'descending way' to God.
on February 22, 1998
I've used this book for the last three Lenten seasons, and it just gets better each year. Each day's text is very short, usually less than 2 pages, so I don't ever feel that I just don't have time to read it. Even though the meditations are short, every day's reading is filled with challenges for me to become closer to God, and to find, as Nouwen puts it, the 'descending way'.
This year I purchased three more copies of this book to share with friends for their Lenten meditations.
