Henri Nouwen: His Life and Spirit

An excellent overview of the life of Henri Nouwen.

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.
