Publishers Description If you are willing to live a life of prayer and practice the disciplines of solitude and community, a new hunger will make itself known. This new hunger is the first sign of God's presence.Henri Nouwen is much loved for his profound but simple insight on Christian spirituality. Making All Things New and Other Classics contains four of his short books focusing on different aspects of the Christian life.Making All Things New introduces the life of spirituality for those whose lives are over-full and over-burdened, yet who yearn to experience more of God's presence. Intimacy answers pastoral questions with an underlying theme of intimacy in relation to God and other people. A Letter of Consolation explores very personally the subject of bereavement in the form of a letter by Henri Nouwen to his father following his mother's death. In The Living Reminder he looks at the seamless connection between spirituality and ministry.Nouwen's pastoral concern and natural empathy with fellow human beings overflow from his gentle observations and wise insight.

Worth Its' Weight in Gold Apr 30, 2010
Henri Nouwen was perhaps one of the greatest spiritual writers of all time. I originally bought this collection to just have Making All Things New, but have since enjoyed the other works in the collection, as well. This is a must have for anyone who wants to get more into Nouwen.
