MembersReviewsPopularityAverage ratingConversations
27None689,060NoneNone
This illustrated biography presents the life and legacy of Henri Nouwen through interviews with his friends and family, including his brother Laurent, l'Arche founder Jean Vanier, author Robert Ellsberg, and writer Ronald Rolheiser. The book was conceived as a companion volume to a CBC radio series airing in September 2012, to mark the anniversary of Nouwen's untimely death at the age of sixty-four. An extensive photo section is included. Coauthor Kevin Burns: "This book is an exploration of ideas about spirituality, about vulnerable mental health, and about 'becoming' more fully what we are compelled to be. It's about parents and children of all ages, it's about asking for help and what you do with that help once it's offered. It's about discovering new strength in your weaknesses. And all of that within the context of Nouwen's overarching reminder about all creation's link to the Creator." Book jacket.… (more)
