I originally read Archbishop Thuan's exercises by way of Zenit - the News of Rome. As compelling as those accounts were, the book is even better. Archbishop Van Thuan's experiences, as a prisoner in Communist prisons for 13 years, and his insight on faith are true food for a hungry soul.
Testimony of Hope is the complete text of those Exercises. Archbishop Van Thuan's description of isolation and abandonment, and his secret for finding hope in despair makes for moving and uplifting reading.
I guarantee that readers will be moved by the 22 meditations. Archbishop Van Thuan offers light amidst the darkness. The book is a quick, easy, and inspirational read.
Excellent spiritual reading especially in preparation for Easter. This book will become part of my permanent library, one I'll want to reread. I can understand why Pope John Paul II invited this author to give a spiritual retreat. Van Thuan is truly a priest's priest.
I am keeping this book in my draw, so I can open it and read again and again.
I learn father Nguyen van Thuan life experience to apply into my life, when I have difficulty.
I would like to buy all books of father Nguyen Van Thuan and to keep them for myself.
The cause for canonization of Francis Xavier Nguyen Van Thuan is well underway.
