  • The longing expressed in the Psalms by those seeking God is the same as the longing of those who are on the pilgrims road of faith today. The search for the way is a recurrent theme in Henri Nouwens writing, and his books serve as roadsigns, pointing the way to decisive commitment, to deep love of God and of each other. This book allows us to follow the forty-day path through Lent in the company of Henri Nouwen. For every day of Lent, from the solemn beginning of Ash Wednesday to the joyous climax of Easter, it contains a carefully selected piece from the best of his writing. In Henri Nouwen we will find a reliable guide for our Lenten journey of reflection and prayer. He invites us to dare once more to choose the narrow but joyful path of Jesus.

  • 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.
