More About the Author

Henri Nouwen was born in Holland in 1932 and ordained a Catholic priest in 1957. He obtained his doctorandus in psychology from Nijmegen University in The Netherlands and taught at Notre Dame, Yale, and Harvard. He experienced the monastic life with Trappist monks at the Abbey of the Genesee, lived among the poor in Latin America with the Maryknoll missioners, and was interested and active in numerous causes related to social justice. After a lifetime of seeking, Henri Nouwen finally found his home in Canada, as pastor of L'Arche Daybreak - where people with intellectual disabilities and their caregivers live together in community.

Henri Nouwen wrote over 40 books on spirituality and the spiritual life that have sold millions of copies and been translated into dozens of languages. His vision of spirituality was broad and inclusive, and his compassion embraced all of humankind.

He died in 1996. His work and his spirit live on.

Henri Nouwen pronounced his name "Henry Now-en." For more information on his life and work, please visit www.henrinouwen.org .

I bought this book for a group of Moms wanting to more fully experience Lent and to deepen their relationship with God. This book easily meets those two expectations. Each day you are given a writing of Nouwen's, a scripture to ponder, a prayer and a Lenten action. You can easily read and pray as the work is doable and applicable to your everyday. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting a more meaningful way to experience Lent.

I have used this book daily for Lent and it is excellent. It compares favorably with Nouwen's "Show Me The Way" which I have been using for Lent for many years now. I recommend both books highly. They compliment each other and add so much spirituality to the Lenten season. Henri Nouwen knows how to speak directly to one's heart.

This is the book that my group is using for Lenten Study this year! It is a great little book, and I am really enjoying it's daily meditative readings, to celebrate each day of Lent and Easter. Such as, for example, Lenton Action: (Day 12, Second Sunday of Lent) Has a daily reading, followed by a prayer, and then the Lenten Action of the day: "Carry out some "giving" actions. Clean out your closets and donate clean and wearable clothing to a charitable organization. Give blood, Do a favor for a neighbor." all ideas for actions that were fitting for that day. This is well worth what it costs, I can see I will be reading this book many times in my future. It is a keeper!

I have always enjoyed reading Henri Nouwen,and the selections presented by Judy Bauer are varied and interesting. She has paired Nouwen with excerpts of Scripture, some familiar to me and some not, that when read together are thought provoking. I especially found meaning in the daily prayers offered and faced many a challenge with the Lenten activities the author proposes. For anyone who enjoys a daily exercise and specific readings, this book provides a thoughtful and enjoyable guide.

This little book is everything I was looking for in a lenten spiritual guide. I am a fan of Henri Nouwen, so the inclusion of his words of wisdom coupled with a short scripture passage and prayer is wonderful. The icing on the cake is the daily lenten action, a different good deed to do that may become impetus for future good deed doing.

I highly suggest this ecumenical Lenten journal for use during Lent. This takes you through the entire season from Ash Wednesday through the days following the celebration of the resurrection. As Lent is a time to reflect on our need of a savior, this book helps us truly see that need but also how Jesus Christ satisfies that need.

I really thought a book about Nouwen and Easter would easily be fabulous, but this really missed the mark. I didn't find the author's commentary/insight to add anything, and I was a little stumped by the choice of which Nouwen passages to include.
