About the Author

Henri J.M. Nouwen was a world-renowned spiritual guide, counselor, and bestselling author of over forty books that many today consider spiritual classics. He taught at the universities of Harvard, Yale, and Notre Dame before becoming the senior pastor of L'Arche Daybreak in Toronto, Canada, a community where men and women with intellectual disabilities and their assistants create a home for one another.

"Brings desert spirituality to bear upon the contemporary scene. ... Hauntingly relevant for us today."--Christianity Today
"Inspiring, to the point, and eminently practical in his advice about living spiritually in the world of today."--Spiritual Book News
