Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“[We] read Nouwen…to discover new possibilities in our faith.”

—New Review of Books and Religion

A profound and beautiful collection of intimate writings, Henry J.M. Nouwens Letters to Marc About Jesus recalls the authors correspondences with his teenage nephew, a boy struggling with issues of faith and spirituality in an apathetic age. The much-beloved author of The Wounded Healer and With Open Hands—named alongside such notables as C.S. Lewis and Thomas Merton as one of the most important Christian writers of the 20th century—Nouwen writes from the heart in the deeply personal Letters to Marc About Jesus, as he imparts a powerful wisdom born of an unassailable faith.

Synopsis:

Nouwen's simple but profound letters to his nephew Marc, written at a time when the young man was feeling a void in his life and aspirations, offer clear guidance for living a spiritual life in a material world. Nouwen ponders the mysteries of God's hidden presence in our daily lives and explores prayer as a means of listening to Jesus. Readers of all ages will find comfort and wisdom here.

Synopsis:

Letters to Marc About Jesus is a beautiful collection of Henri Nouwen's very intimate and very enlightening writings to Marc, his nineteen-year-old nephew, who struggles to find his true path in a world of confusion and apathy. Written with Nouwen's characteristic grace and wisdom, these letters bear witness to his conviction that anyone can find lasting spiritual fulfillment if they simply take the time to maintain a daily awareness of Jesus in every aspect of life. Powerful and profound, Letters to Marc About Jesus is Nouwen at his best--teacher, guide, and mentor--and will provide the direction and inspiration necessary for any believer to change his or her life.
