Product Description

The Living Reminder is a gift from Henri J.M. Nouwen, often considered one of the twentieth century's most beloved and important spiritual writers, along with C.S. Lewis and Thomas Merton. In this rich and deceptively simple book Nouwen speaks -- from the heart and from his own experience --of the joys and challenges of religious service. He shows how ministry cannot be separated from spirituality and reveals how anyone involved in religiously motivated service can act as a healing, sustaining, and guiding reminder of Jesus. Nouwen shows us how service is prayer and prayer is service.

Henri J. M. Nouwen (1932-1996) was the author of With Open Hands, Reaching Out, The Wounded Healer, Making All Things New, and many other bestsellers. He was the senior pastor of L'Arche Daybreak in Toronto, Canada, a community where men and women with mental disabilities and their assistants create a home for one another.

"The Living Reminder was like a visit from a friend I needed to speak with. The surprise for me was how much I needed to hear him say familiar things."

- National Catholic Reporter

--Sister Helen Prejean, C.S.J., author of Dead Man Walking
