Nouwen's writings reflect a genuine human struggle to draw closer to God. While a Catholic priest, he was focused on the Jesus story as it applied to his life and he didn't waste any time on the trappings of the institutional church. Nouwen had friends all over the world and another of the books available allows more than 50 who knew him to comment on their experience of Henri as he touched their lives. Throughout his life, Nouwen wrote of his quest for God. He spoke in very simple, human and compassionate ways that found many people from all walks of life being drawn to his message. This daily meditation book offers the reader a sampling of Henri Nouwen's thoughts and struggles on the journey on a wide variety of themes. Its a great resource for daily readings to bring focus to our days or as a source of prayer when starting a meeting. Many people from vastly differing faith tradition embrace Nouwen's message,his struggles for greater faith and his prayers for courage.
His tremendous body of work that speaks to the everyday man or woman has grown in recognition increasingly since his death and the light he cast through his writing, lecturing, ministry and teaching continues to grow. Henri Nouwen died suddenly during a visit to his family in the Netherlands in 1996.
Highly recommended. Daniel J. Maloney, Saint Paul, Minnesota USA
