JoAnn Bastien5 Stars Out Of 5January 28, 2004JoAnn BastienNouwen is an excellent author and this is by far his best book. Highly recommend to serious ministers (lay and professional). This is not light reading.
Heather2 Stars Out Of 5April 10, 2002HeatherThis is a good book. However if you are new to ministry or just want to learn a little this isn't very good.
John Beeson5 Stars Out Of 5December 5, 2000John BeesonA fantastic book. This book is the clearest articulation I have read of both the effects of postmodernism on the church and how a minister must respond to this broken world. Nouwen does not shun academia, but neither does his work come off as erudite and impractical.
Geoff Bailey5 Stars Out Of 5March 27, 2000Geoff BaileyThis book provides a realistic look into the realities of being a minister in a wounded world. Nouwen does not avoid theology nor does he steep his discussion in the ivory towers of academia. He brings theological astuteness and practical reflection together in what I would consider a must for anyone in the ministry.
