Overview

“We always have a choice to live
the moment as a cause of resentment or as a cause for joy.”—Henri Nouwen (1932–1996)



The insights of Henri Nouwen have
shown millions of people how to choose joy in any moment—even moments full of
pain and brokenness.  Few spiritual writers
have ever spoken so powerfully and directly to the heart as he did, in part because he compassionately bared his
own soul and struggles to his readers, but also because he deeply understood
that God can be discovered in every aspect of ourselves, even—almost
especially—in the parts we find difficult to acknowledge.

This
anthology of Nouwen’s teaching covers all his major themes—God, love, life,
death, psychology, woundedness, healing,
and social action—and is drawn from among his more than forty books. It’s the
perfect, compact introduction to this brilliant and humble Catholic priest whom
Christianity Today called “one of the
world’s great spiritual writers.”
