What's the secret to living a spiritual life? Living a disciplined life, according to Henri Nouwen. In the spiritual life, discipline requires conscious effort to keep every area of life from being filled - it means creating space for God. Nouwen identifies 3 essential disciplines for maintaining a life of discipleship: solitude, community, and ministry. This encouraging, insightful book inspires readers to practice all 3 disciplines. The result, Nouwen promises, is a fruitful, Spirit-filled life.
