Mornings with Henri J. M. Nouwen Nov 21, 2006
A wonderful collection of short readings to give pause for thought each day.A good introduction to Henri Nouwen's writing style, and a look at his heart.
Reflections for Everyman Apr 3, 2005
Here's Henri Nouwen, wishing he'd memorized more prayers: "I fear that in crisis situations I will have to depend on my own unredeemed ramblings and not have the Word of God to guide me." This admission reveals Nouwen, a revered spiritual teacher, to be accessible to the ordinary seeker. And the fact that this quote is taken from a reflection called "The Value of Memorized Prayers" further shows Nouwen as one open to all avenues toward holiness. The 112 single-page reflections in this work, chosen from Nouwen's writings on prayer, solitude, and community, are sure to inspire and encourage all who reflect on them. As a bonus, the book is sized to fit in pocket or purse and includes charming photos of Nouwen. Faith-sharing groups could turn to any page for a discussion starter.
Among the Most Inspired Catholic Writers of the 20th Century Dec 19, 2004
Henri Nouwen, in my opinion, will be considered one of the most inspired Catholic writers of the 20th Century. Nouwen wrote from his lived experience of being human and yet, finding himself always on a quest for a closer union with God.
With Thomas Merton, Dorothy Day, and Mother Teresa, Nouwen will in time be considered one of the luminary spiritual writers of the last century.
Mornings With Henri Nouwen is just a series of very brief reflections that can be used to start one's day. I really like these types of books and tend to leave them in different places around my house so that I will come across different ones at different times of the day.
The topics covered weave Nouwen's writings into them and are truly good thoughts to consider at the start of the day.
Highly recommended for a spiritual focal point to start the day with. James J. Maloney Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA
Great inspirational Book Apr 26, 2000
Henri Nouwen gives us all a wonderful way to start each day! His inspirational and thought provoking views of life, both practical and spiritual, are just right for any Christian. Although Nouwen was Roman Catholic, his writings provide "soul food" for anyone looking for something more from day to day life. I would recommend this lovely little book to all.
