More About this Book
This book was written by Nouwen after the death of his handicapped friend Adam Arnett. “From the moment I saw Adam’s body lying in his casket, I was struck by the mystery of this man’s life and death…Adam’s death touched me deeply because for me he was the one who more than any book or professor led me to the person of Jesus.” Written in the final year of Nouwen’s life and published posthumously, it is an expression of Nouwen’s deep convictions as a Christian.
