“Pick up this book and let it guide you to reflect on the questions of your life and the choices ahead. Through reading, journaling, and just plain savoring the message of our lives, the authors lead us through Henri Nouwen’s writings to author our own lives in a vibrant way.”
—Simone Campbell, SSS
Henri Nouwen is widely recognized as one of the most beloved and prolific spiritual writers in contemporary times. Yet Nouwen’s own spiritual journey was marked by his emotional struggles, anxieties and loneliness. Although he owned his brokenness, he was careful not to be defined by it. The essential questions he wrestled with are the same that speak to our own hearts: Who am I? Who is God? How do I know God loves me? Where is God when suffering surrounds me? How can I find interior peace in anxious, troubled times? This unique retreat experience encourages readers to profoundly reflect on these five existential questions in light of their own doubts and insecurities.
Among the extensive writings that have made Henri Nouwen a treasured spiritual guide for years, On Retreat with Henri Nouwen: Engaging Life’s Big Questions is one of the most timely and compelling books for today’s believers and seekers alike.
