Henri Nouwen: His Life and Spirit

An excellent overview of the life of Henri Nouwen.

Most informative book of all books by him this one about not by him

Much more personal biography of the person and what he was about rather than all the books he wrote taking on a different angle I love the little biographic book a pleasant surprise

Kevin Burns began his professional career in 1973 teaching theater arts in a British high school. After moving to Canada, he taught in the Drama Department of the University of Alberta and then turned his attention to public broadcasting as a radio producer for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. He was also an editor for Novalis in Toronto, specializing in spirituality, religion, and theology, bringing more than 200 books to print. Though focused on print, he continued to create radio documentaries for the CBC, in religion and spirituality, including the New York Festival’s Gold Award winning “Genius Born of Anguish: The Life and Legacy of Henri Nouwen.” The tie-in book to that series, co-authored with Michael W. Higgins and published in 2013, received a CBA award for Spirituality. This biography is his first non-collaborative writing project.
