An interesting presentation copy:

  • The Spirituality of the Compassion (1977) by Henri Nouwen, Douglas Morrison, and Donald McNeill

This is a buckram bound mimeographed typescript manuscript. Autographed presentation copy from Henri Nouwen to the late Colin Williams (Dean Yale Divinity, etc.). It begins with a typed letter: “We invite you to remain part of our ongoing work together by any comment you might have on this text, by any suggestion you can make for our further work, and by any ideas you would like to share with us.” Many years in the works; eventually published as Compassion – Reflections on the Christian Life (2006).

This book is the 38th signed book by Henri Nouwen housed in the merton-artifacts collection.
