Publisher's Summary

Nouwen uses the cup as a metaphor to articulate the basic postures of the spiritual life: holding, lifting and drinking. The cup is a powerful image in our human experience. We use cups in our celebrations of a variety of events. Nouwen reminds us that we also use the cup as a symbolic vessel-for sorrow, joy, blessings, salvation.

"Drinking our cup to the bottom is seen as the expression of the full freedom of the sons and daughters of God," Nouwen writes. His goal is to make the question Jesus posed to James and John pierce our hearts so that a personal answer can emerge from it. The way we answer Jesus' question, "Can you drink the cup...?" has the power to radically change our lives.

    "On of Nouwen's best..."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Can You Drink the Cup? to be better than the print version?

    I love listening to Henri's words... Even though it is not his voice, his writing style is so conversational, it is like sitting a room with him talking just to you.
