Reaching Out is one of Nouwen's finest works and may very well be one of the best treatments of Christian spirituality written in the twentieth century. In Reaching Out Nouwen describes the spiritual life as a series of movements. Thus, in order to proceed towards maturity in Christ he suggests that we need to move from: loneliness to solitude, hostility to hospitality and from illusion to prayer. This book is a sure guide that will help you learn how to accept yourself, love others more effectively and learn to love God more passionately.

It makes each Christian think about how well he/she has been doing about getting closer to God. He uses simple language to explain complex issues. Easy reading that will trigger your hunger for spirituality, if it exists.
