Editorial Reviews

“An essay in the form of a long letter to [Nouwen’s] father after the death of his mother. One might well pass it on to anyone who is going through a period of grief after loss.”
“Recognized for the depth and warmth of his spiritual communication, Father Nouwen grapples with death, a particular death--his mother’s...An intelligent, loving letter to a Christian facing a powerful enemy, death.”
“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.”
