  • The beloved spiritual writer is our guide in this unique retelling of the Gospel. Seamlessly woven from his many writings, Henri Nouwens Jesus retraces the greatest story ever told from the Annunciation to the Resurrection.

    As Michael OLaughlin notes, "Henri was a teacher, a man sent from God, and his ministry was to show people what God is doing in the world and how we might respond." In this beautiful book, in the company of one of the great spiritual masters of our time, we rediscover the Gospel with new eyes.

  • Henri Nouwen

    'Even though I often give in to the many fears and warnings of my world, I still believe deeply that our few years on this earth are part of a much longer event that stretches out far beyond the boundaries of our birth and death. I think of it as a mission into time, a mission that is very exhilarating and even exciting, mostly because the One who sent me on the mission is waiting for me to come home and tell the story of what I have learned.' - Henri Nouwen at the time of his death in 1996

    Henri Nouwen was one of the most popular spiritual writers in the world. Through more than fifty books he touched countless people with his compelling interpretation of Christian faith and the gospel. In part his impact came from his willingness to draw deeply on his own experience, inviting readers to share his joys, his anguish, and his spiritual journey. That journey led him from his home in Holland to America; from a series of prestigious academic posts to a Trappist monastery, to the poor of Latin America, and finally to Canada, where he found his final home in a L'Arche community devoted to the care of handicapped adults.
