Publisher's Description

One of the best-loved spiritual writers of our time takes a moving, personal look at human mortality

Henri Nouwen shares his own experiences with aging, loss, grief, and fear, gently and eloquently revealing the gifts that the living and dying can give to one another.

Author Bio

Henri J. M. Nouwen (1932-1996) is the author of Reaching Out, The Wounded Healer, Making All Things New, The Return of the Prodigal Son, and many other bestsellers. He taught at the universities of Harvard, Yale, and Notre Dame before becoming the senior pastor of L'Arche Daybreak in Toronto, Canada, a community where men and women with intellectual disabilities and their assistants create a home for one another.

Editorial Reviews

“…a very comforting book. …Nouwen offers us here a gentle, almost meditative book on coming to terms with death.”
“It’s a new way of looking at death, one with an upside.”
“One of my favorite ‘caregivers,’ Henri Nouwen challenges us to accept our death as part of our spiritual journey, not its end. …Nouwen continues to be a must read.”
“On the long road it’s good to have Nouwen and his diving rod. Deftly he bends toward the drop of spiritual wisdom caked in the most ordinary things.”
