Book Overview

In times of suffering, simplistic answers ring empty and hollow. But Henri Nouwen, beloved spiritual thinker and author, offers real comfort in the concrete truth of God's constancy. Nouwen suggests that by greeting life's pains with something other than despair, we can find surprising joy in our suffering. He suggests that the way through suffering is not in denial, but rather in living fully in the midst of the trials life brings our way.

great words of wisdom from Henri Nouwen

This collection of writings by Henri Nouwen offers wonderful insight and comfort for those dealing with loss and depression.

Mourning our losses and learning to live in spite of them.

This is an amazing book. I found it to be very validating to my life experience. The best part is that it gives a beautiful and enlightening look at suffering and puts it in perspective in the larger picture. Living in a culture that doesn't like to acknowledge suffering (or that considers it to be 'I didn't get the color of BMW that I wanted') this helps one process his/her deeply felt grief. I highly recommend it.

More than just turning your Mourning into Dancing...

Timothy Jones did an excellent job compiling and editing this Henri Nouwen book. I highly recommend this book to everyone - whether you're going through a time of mourning or helping a friend through a difficult time. This is a book that helps one recognize a deeper relationship with God - making Him known even in the most difficult times when you think He is nowhere near. Nouwen is on point when he says not to bury yourself in busy-ness. You don't learn anything from this time of mourning if you don't experience it. Don't dwell in it - but learn from it. I'm a Stephen Leader at my church and will be recommending it to all of our Stephen Ministers to help them in their caring relationships.
