Bybelse Spiritualiteit

Henri Nouwen en Die Terugkeer van die Verlore Seun

Die Spiritualiteit van Henri Nouwen aan die hand van sy boek: Die Terugkeer van die Verlore Seun, wat onlangs in Afrikaanse vertaling verskyn het (LuxVerbi-BM).

Spreker: Pieter Villiers, wat die werk in Afrikaans vertaal het, en Christo Lombaard.

Die bespreking sal fokus op die spiritualiteit van Henri Nouwen in die algemeen, en daarna sal in diepte na sy Bybelse Spiritualiteit gekyk word. Van die vrae wat aangeraak sal word is: Waarom is Henri Nouwen wêreldwyd een van die gewildste spiritualiteitskrywers? Hoe lees hy die Bybel? Watter riglyne bied sy werk vir 'n lees van die Bybel vandag?

Die bespreking sal in Afrikaans plaasvind. Vertalings van twee van Nouwen se boeke in Afrikaans sal beskikbaar wees.
