  • Relections on Henri Nouwens life by those who knew and worked with him.

    A few weeks after Henris burial, I was speaking with his brother Laurent on the phone. I am missing Henri more and more, I confessed. Laurent responded with typical bluntness. He said, We are also missing who we were around Henri: we are missing ourselves., Carolyn Whitney-Brown

    Ten years after his death in 1996, Henri Nouwen remains one of the most popular and influential spiritual writers of our time. What accounted for his strong personal impact on so many people? The memories, anecdotes, and reflections collected here, all by people who knew and worked with him, shed light on the meaning of Nouwens life, the diverse facets of his complex personality, and the nature of his enduring legacy.

    Contributors include Carolyn Whitney-Brown, Michael OLaughlin, Michael Christensen, John Dear, Jim Forest, Chris Glaser, Robert Ellsberg, and Michael Ford, reflecting on Nouwens relation to such themes as friendship, compassion, the Eucharist, community, peacemaking, spiritual direction, prayer, and sexuality.
