    The reputation of Henri Nouwen (1932, 96), author of The Return of the Prodigal Son and former pastor of the LArche Daybreak community in Canada, has perhaps never been stronger; recent revelations about his personal struggles with sexuality and despair have made him only more human and appealing. ORourke, a nurse and lay pastoral minister, offers a fine and sensitive book deeply inspired by Nouwens reflections on death, suffering, and the care we extend to the suffering and dying. With many examples of writing by Nouwen and others, she assures us that the single most important factor in our spiritual journey, our journey through living and dying, is believing wholeheartedly that our God is a God who loves us completely. VERDICT A thoughtful treatment of the spiritual needs of the dying, the suffering, and those who care for them.
