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. "As Nouwen wrestles with (among other issues) his suspicions of fame, this simple and sophisticated man of prayer invites us to grapple with our own false and true voices."
  2. "Henri Nouwen writes with his usual grace, drawing us close to the God who embraces us all with love."
    --The Other Side
  3. Nouwen, author of more than 30 books and pastor of L'Arche Daybreak Community Center in Toronto, here shares his spiritual journey. In simple meditations he gently and quietly presents small packets of wisdom, most of them already known to Nouwen readers. Among the less familiar, some insights inevitably are more illuminating than others. For instance, Nouwen reports asking Mother Theresa's advice concerning his many and complex problems. Her answer.'Well, when you spend one hour a day adoring your Lord and never do anything which is wrong . . . you will be fine'.Well, when you spend one hour a day adoring your Lord and never do anything which is wrong . . . you will be fine'—completely cuts through his pretentious self-absorption and points directly to what is holy. While the present volume is hardly Nouwen at his best, it still has some fine moments and is a rewarding read.
