Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus: A Gospel?
Another winner from Nouwen Apr 1, 2003
This beautiful book, illustrated with pictures from Rembrandt, is one Henri Nouwen would have written about Jesus himself, if he were still alive. Instead, editor Michael O'Laughlin gives us selected writings of Nouwen's that illustrate the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, and how we can apply them to our daily lives. Nouwen's messages of love, self-sacrifice and servant-leadership come alive in these selections. Definitely worth it.
I do have to wonder, though, how many compilations of Nouwen's work can be put out before the effect is diluted. Those who are in charge of his estate may need to think about easing back on re-releasing his work, and let what he has stand on its own. Otherwise, it can get rather repetitious, as some of what was in this book I have read in other books already.
