Henri J.M. Nouwen (Author)

Henri J.M. Nouwen, author of more than 40 books, was considered one of the great spiritual writers of modern times. He taught at the University of Notre Dame, Harvard and Yale, but shared teh alst ten years of his life with people with mental handicaps as pastor of the l'Arche Daybreak community in Toronto, Canada

  1. “With his brutal self-scrutiny and honesty, Nouwen takes us through the interior meaning of his trip to ‘death’s portal,’ and gives us courage and hope for our own encounter someday.”
    --Church and Synagogue Library Association
  2. “As with Nouwen’s other works, vivid images, strong analogies, and keen reflection dominate. I commend the book as a gift that the busy preacher or academic might give oneself.”
    --Restoration Quarterly
  3. “The book is well worth reading for people who seek a deeper and richer glimpse into the mystery of the divine presence of God.”
    --Ashland Theological Journal
  4. “This is not a book of easy answers as to why accidents happen. Instead, Nouwen’s story reveals God as one who will use these interruptions in life to show us that, being anchored in His love, we are free to escape the compulsions of this world.”
    --New Oxford Review
