I’m pleased to welcome the release of the third book in Wil Hernandez’s trilogy on the life and ministry of Henri Nouwen, titled Henri Nouwen and Spiritual Polarities: A Life of Tension. He writes out of his deep doctoral research on Henri Nouwen. Wil does a masterful job of helping us enter into one of Nouwen’s significant contributions, that of being able to hold together dynamics that tend to push many of us into “either/or” thinking. Nouwen was able to live and describe a vital tension between self-owning and self-giving, woundedness and healing, solitude and community, compassion and confrontation, and suffering and glory, to name a few. Rather than choosing a preferred side of this tension, Nouwen (and Wil) invite us into the fruitful embrace at the center of these tensions. I heartily recommend it.
