Take a new look at With Open Hands, Henri Nouwen’s first book on prayer and a treasured introduction to prayer for over thirty years. With Open Hands gently encourages an open, trusting stance toward God and offers insight into the component’s of prayer: silence, acceptance, hope, compassion, and prophetic criticism. Updated for a new generation with moving photography and a foreword by Sue Monk Kidd.
Prayer is a way of life which allows you to find a stillness in the midst of the world where you open your hands to God’s promises and find hope for yourself, your neighbor, and your world. — Henri J.M. Nouwen
