Publisher Comments:

“We always have a choice to live the moment as a cause of resentment or as a cause for joy.”—Henri Nouwen (1932-1996)

The insights of Henri Nouwen have shown millions of people how to choose joy in any moment—even moments full of pain and brokenness.  Few spiritual writers have ever spoken so powerfully and directly to the heart as he did, in part because he compassionately bared his own soul and struggles to his readers, but also because he deeply understood that God can be discovered in every aspect of ourselves, even—almost especially—in the parts we find difficult to acknowledge.

This anthology of Nouwens teaching covers all his major themes—God, love, life, death, psychology, woundedness, healing, and social action—and is drawn from among his more than forty books. Its the perfect, compact introduction to this brilliant and humble Catholic priest whom Christianity Today called “one of the worlds great spiritual writers.”

Synopsis:

Along with Thomas Merton, the late Henri Nouwen is one of the most enduringly popular spiritual writers of the 20th century. This collection is a perfect introduction to his teaching and a great source of inspiration for anyone.

Synopsis:

Henri Nouwen (1932–1996) is, along with Thomas Merton, one of the most enduringly popular spiritual writers of the twentieth centuryand, like Mertons, his popularity has continued to grow in the years since his death. He was a Dutch Catholic priest and theologian who abandoned a stellar academic career teaching at Harvard and Yale to spend his life living in a community of mentally handicapped people in Toronto, Canada. Beset by personal demons and intense suffering of his own, he made his life and struggles an open book, inviting his readers to find happiness in the midst of their own brokenness and pain and showing them how to do it.

This compact collection brings together all of Henri Nouwens principle ideas and themes into an attractive volume. Its a perfect introduction to his teaching and a great source of inspiration for anyone.
