Drawing on three moments in the life of Jesus, Henri Nouwen invites us to reflect on the tension between our desire for solitude and the demands of contemporary life. He reminds us that it was in solitude that Jesus found the courage to follow God's will. And he shows us that fruitful love and service must spring from a living relationship with God. Beautifully written, elegantly simple, Out of Solitude is as fresh today as it was thirty years ago.

“The power of his words.”
“Henri Nouwen has become a beloved spiritual writer for many people, and this book shows why. The power of his words takes a reader off to a place in imagination and emotion akin to a headland on the sea or a clearing in a forest or a low peak in a range of hills.”
Author of Care of the Soul (from the foreword)
