Product Description

Relections on Henri Nouwen's life by those who knew and worked with him.

"A few weeks after Henri's burial, I was speaking with his brother Laurent on the phone. 'I am missing Henri more and more,' I confessed. Laurent responded with typical bluntness. He said, 'We are also missing who we were around Henri: we are missing ourselves.'"-Carolyn Whitney-Brown

Ten years after his death in 1996, Henri Nouwen remains one of the most popular and influential spiritual writers of our time. What accounted for his strong personal impact on so many people? The memories, anecdotes, and reflections collected here, all by people who knew and worked with him, shed light on the meaning of Nouwen's life, the diverse facets of his complex personality, and the nature of his enduring legacy.

Contributors include Carolyn Whitney-Brown, Michael O'Laughlin, Michael Christensen, John Dear, Jim Forest, Chris Glaser, Robert Ellsberg, and Michael Ford, reflecting on Nouwen's relation to such themes as friendship, compassion, the Eucharist, community, peacemaking, spiritual direction, prayer, and sexuality.

Gerald S. Twomey, a diocesan priest from Long Island, is the editor of Thomas Merton: Prophet in the Belly of a Paradox.

Claude Pomerleau, a priest of the Congregation of the Holy Cross, is associate professor of international relations at the University of Portland.
