Through his insightful writings, Henri Nouwen has exerted a powerful influence on Christians from all walks of life, challenging and inspiring them to draw closer to God and live accordingly. In Nouwen Then, Christian leaders share what this frequently-quoted Christian thinker has meant to them-in thought, in practical living, in matters of faith. Whether they have read many of Nouwen's books or recently "discovered" him, readers will find this book to be full of practical insights and testimonies to the impact that one person who truly seeks God can have.From the Back Cover:
The name Henri Nouwen stands for qualities foreign to our culture. Forsaking the Ivy League prestige of Harvard, he became, in his life at the L'Arche Daybreak Community in Canada, a living example of "downward mobility." Yet in making himself of no reputation, this humble priest, scholar, writer, and speaker influenced millions. On September 21, 1996, Henri died unexpectedly, leaving a legacy that will not be measured in material wealth but in the faces and hearts he touched. Nouwen Then reveals the impact of a life lived fully devoted to Christ. With beauty, love, and sensitivity, editor Christopher de Vinck weaves his personal memories of Henri Nouwen with the reflections of other Christian communicators. Philip Yancey, Luci Shaw, Kelly Monroe, Fred Rogers -- these and others share their tributes to a fellow pilgrim and his influence on their journeys of faith. Prepare to consider your own life in a new light. For as you will discover through these candid, personal reflections, Henri Nouwen continues to point--through his own words and the memories of others -- to a simpler, a better, a more Christ-like way of life.
