  • With the cooperation of Henri Nouwen, Jurjen Beumer spent a decade researching and writing this incisive biography of one of the most renowned spiritual figures of our time. Jurjen Beumers seminal work traces the arc of Nouwens life from the beginning in Nijkerk, Holland to his final resting place on the outskirts of Toronto, Canada near LArche Daybreak, the community of people he loved and served. In this book, the reader meets Nouwen as an always restless seeker who gradually becomes more at home with God and with himself. The reader is exposed to a vital spirituality that can relate both to ones own life and seeking for wholeness, and to the world at large. Henri Nouwens untimely death in 1996 intervened between the completion of Beumers manuscript for this book and its publication. To do justice to the legacy of Nouwens life Jurjen Beumer has added a posthumous tribute to his friend. Includes an eclectic selection of private photographs spanning Nouwens life.
