Description: Henri Nouwen (1932-1996) was a Catholic priest who taught at several theological institutions and universities in his home country of The Netherlands and in the United States. He spent the final years of his life teaching and ministering at the L'Arche Daybreak Community, a home for people with mental and physical disabilities, in Toronto, Canada. His writings have touched millions of readers around the world, and since his death, recognition of their enduring value has continued to grow. Oprah Winfrey, one of Nouwen's many admirers, ran an extensive excerpt from The Prodigal Son in her magazine, O, with Hillary Clinton contributing an introduction revealing the profound effect Nouwen had on her own life.

However, Nouwen's influence was not limited to the printed page. His one-on-one encounters as a lecturer, teacher, and spiritual guide, and as a leader at the L'Arche Daybreak Community, enriched the lives of a wide variety of people. Now "Befriending Life" brings together thoughtful, heartfelt remembrances of Nouwen by those who knew him best, from members of L'Arche to such prominent figures as Joseph Cardinal Bernadin of Chicago and Hillary Clinton. Their personal reflections on his life both on and off the page magnificently capture his spirit, compassion, and wisdom. With a wealth of quotations from Nouwen throughout, "Befriending Life", like Nouwen's own great books, will inspire readers in all walks of life.
