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 think the story of Father Stanley Francis Rother is a compelling one, but Henry Nouwen does not do it justice. I have heard good things about Nouwen's other writings, but this story is poorly researched. I learned more in the Epilogue than I did the rest of the book, and it left me wondering why Nouwen failed to investigate certain aspects of Father Stan's life. Rather than an honest, detailed look into his life, Nouwen paints a one dimensional character and chooses to ignore the human aspects of Father Stan's life. It had a cheesy Catholic feel to it, as if Henry was just writing propaganda to promote Father Stan to the sainthood.

I am glad I read the book, as it exposed me the life of a martyr, and I don't know another book that tells the story of Father Stan. But for a more general investigative book on some of the history of Guatemala's long war, I would recommend Silence On The Mountain by Daniel Wilkinson.

Henri Nouwen traveled to the Lake Atitlan area of Guatemala to understand the life and death of Father Stan, who worked among the Maya people before and during the civil war. It was a bloody time in Santiage de Atitlan. I read the book in preparation for a trip to Santiago where Father Stan was murdered. Nouwen's straight forward account of Father Stan's role among the people is moving. It certainly deepened our appreciation and understanding of the area where we were working, building stoves for Maya villagers.
