Letters to Marc About Jesus is a beautiful collection of Henri Nouwen's very intimate and very enlightening writings to Marc, his nineteen-year-old nephew, who struggles to find his true path in a world of confusion and apathy. Written with Nouwen's characteristic grace and wisdom, these letters bear witness to his conviction that anyone can find lasting spiritual fulfillment if they simply take the time to maintain a daily awareness of Jesus in every aspect of life. Powerful and profound, Letters to Marc About Jesus is Nouwen at his best--teacher, guide, and mentor--and will provide the direction and inspiration necessary for any believer to change his or her life.

Reviews - What do customers think about Letters to Marc About Jesus: Living a Spiritual Life in a Material World?

My Favorite Nouwen  May 20, 2005
I thoroughly enjoyed The Return of the Prodigal, but Letters to Marc about Jesus has replaced TRotP as my favorite by Nouwen. Every chapter begins slowly and personally, but there are segments within the chapters that are as piercing and insightful as my favorite CS Lewis excerpts. The chapter on Jesus: The Loving God is a great example, as I think Nouwen captures, in a well-written and succinct nutshell, both the problem with and the solution to the world as we generally know it. I don't think he set out to solve the world's problems, nor do I think it's easy to do so. But, as Chesterton said: I am (the problem with the world); and this chapter by Nouwen explains precisely why I am the problem. This one, like the best by Lewis, deserves reading and re-reading. It is devotional and challenging at the same time.
 
Letters to Marc about Jesus  Jun 29, 2000
Though written to a ninteen year old nephew, this book is for any youth or adult. The book centers on Jesus as God's revelation to man and how to personally experience being a disciple of Jesus. Each letter grows out of Nouwen's personal walk and experience during a year of searching for God's direction for himself. Each letter has truth that makes you ask 'why haven't I seen that before.' This is a five star book; a book to be re-read and turned to often for it's refreshing ideas. Persons reading Letters to Marc may also want to read Philip Yancy's What's So Amazing About Grace.
