Henri Nouwen

I was extremely disappointed in the book. I felt that the author spent way too much time on the orher characters in Henri's life. I really did'nt get a feel for who Henri Nouwen really was. I would not recommend tie book..

Henri Nouwn : His Life and Spirit

This book both confirms why i love him so much and i have also learned something new about him. It has been a good read.

Splendid Book

I bought this book by accident and what a wonderful accident it was! I knew very little about Henri and didn’t realize this was only a biography but was delighted to find it was so much more. The book presented so many of his thoughts and reflections as well as much insight into one who suffered with so many personal trials. Great for anyone who has problems with depression and feelings stemming from childhood. A great treasure.


Henri Nouwen: His Life and Spirit

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.
