    --Chattanooga Times
  3. “Nouwen writes succinctly, with clarity and ease.”
  4. “An incisive, moving book.”
    --Review and Expositor

    --Christian Home and School
  8. “A jewel.”
    --Catholic Twin Circle
  9. “He packs in more wisdom than most authors do in books ten times the size.”
  10. “With passion and intelligence, Nouwen speaks to the current ‘crisis in ministry,’ offering a powerful apologetic for Christian ministry.”
    --Restoration Quarterly

    --Prairie Messenger
  12. “Nouwen’s trademark honesty and compassion permeate every page . . . Every church library should have a Nouwen collection, and this title should be in it.”
    --Church and Synagogue Library Association
  13. “The overall message of the book is as touching and moving as we have seen before in Nouwen’s work. The image of the servant-leader among the people is one that needs to be pointed out again and again in the church.”
    --Sisters Today

His message movingly conveys how his relationships with these broken people have touched him deeply in return. Heart-warming and provocative.”
    --Library Journal

    --Our Sunday Visitor
