Description: Nouwen reflects on the struggles in facing death, particularly when it comes knocking unexpectedly. After his recovery from an accident in which his spleen was ruptured, Nouwen realised that he was very much alive, but he was not sure of the purpose of it. In this search for meaning, his main question becomes: "Why am I alive, why wasn't I found ready to enter the house of God, why was I returned to a place where love is so ambiguous, where peace so hard to experience and joy so deeply hidden sorrow?" "Beyond the Mirror" examines the accident, Nouwen's call in life and his attitudes toward others. Nouwen shares that the most difficult aspect to surviving his close brush with death is the blend of his continued yearning for the God of love, which comes with a need to share that love with others, and the gnawing sense of being unfulfilled. Read by Paul Smith, the reflections are recorded in 1 CD with the total duration of approximately one hour with tracks every 4-6 minutes for easy bookmarking.
