COMPASSION: A REFLECTION ON CHRISTIAN LIFE
Subtitled "Experiencing the power of God's care". By Henri J.M. Nouwen, Donald P. McNeil and Douglas A. Morrison. The authors look at compassion with a vigorous new perspective. They place compassion at the heart of Christian life in a world governed far too long by principles of power and destructive control. Compassion, no longer merely an eraser of human mistakes, is a force of prayer and action - the expression of God's love for us and lou love for Him and one another. This book says no to a compassion of guilt and failure and yes to a compassionate love that pervades our spirit and moves us to action. The authors have written a moving document on what it means to be a Christian in a difficult time.
