As Michael O'Laughlin notes in his introduction, "What the early church called 'the good news' was often communicated by one person reaching out to another. . . This is what Henri Nouwen did. He was a teacher, a man sent from God, and his ministry was to show people what God is doing in the world and how we might respond." In this book, in the company of a modern spiritual master, we are invited to rediscover the gospel story with new eyes.
