Henri Nouwen and Soul Care, A Ministry of Integration, by Wil Hernandez
Discusses Nouwen's life as both an imperfect integration and yet and understanding of wholeness as an integration of theology, psychology, and ministry, with spirituality as a connecting and integrating approach. Nouwen, according to Hernandez, lived and sought to see the whole person, the complete human being, as the focus of spirituality.
Hernandez further argues that Nouwen understood soul care, or spiritual direction as complete only if they considered all three aspects of life when approaching people to care for them. It is important for Hernandez, and presumably for Nouwen, that we understand our jobs not as healers (not everyone can be healed - physically, emotionally, or spiritually), but we can care for everyone. Healing apparently, is God's job; ours is to care for souls (read: complete people).
