Lifesigns: Intimacy, Fecundity, and Ecstasy in Christian Perspective

$ 22.95

"This book is based upon the conviction that love is stronger than fear, though it may often seem that the opposite is true. 'Perfect love casts out all fear' says St. John in his first letter. In this book I hope to search for the signs of this perfect love and look for ways to follow those signs. I hope to show the possibility of a spiritual movement: the movement out of the house of fear into the house of love." —Henri J.M. Nouwen, from the Introduction

In Lifesigns, Nouwen explores three elements of what he considered the call of all people: —Intimacy-the Gospel invitation to communion with God and relationship with others
—Fecundity-the exhortation to be open to a fruitful life of both growth and change
—Ecstasy-the Gospel wish and promise of Jesus that "your joy may be complete" (John 15:11).
He shows how these elements are essential to our movement from the "house of fear" to the "house of love."
