Reviews - What do customers think about Lent and Easter Wisdom from Henri J. M. Nouwen?
Word's from Henri Nouwen Mar 26, 2007
I have used this book daily for Lent and it is excellent. It compares favorably with Nouwen's "Show Me The Way" which I have been using for Lent for many years now. I recommend both books highly. They compliment each other and add so much spirituality to the Lenten season. Henri Nouwen knows how to speak directly to one's heart.
Lenten Journey Mar 25, 2007
A group of us have been using this book as our Lenten study. It has been way to open discussion about our spritual journeys.
Perfect Lenten Journey for Moms Feb 28, 2007
I bought this book for a group of Moms wanting to more fully experience Lent and to deepen their relationship with God. This book easily meets those two expectations. Each day you are given a writing of Nouwen's, a scripture to ponder, a prayer and a Lenten action. You can easily read and pray as the work is doable and applicable to your everyday. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting a more meaningful way to experience Lent.
