Publisher's Summary

Over the course of his life, Henri Nouwen wrote thousands of letters to friends, acquaintances, parishioners, students, and readers of his work all around the world. He corresponded in English, Dutch, German, French, and Spanish and took great care to store and archive the letters decade after decade. He believed that a thoughtful letter written in love could truly change someone's life. Many people looked to Nouwen as a long-distance spiritual advisor.

Love, Henri consists of over 100 letters that stretch from the earliest years of Henri's career up through his last 10 years at L'Arche Daybreak. Rich in spiritual insights, the letters highlight a number themes that emerged in both Henri's work over the years, including vocation, solitude, prayer, suffering, and perseverance in difficult times. These deeply spiritual letters, sometimes poignant, sometimes funny, ulimately demonstrate the rich value of communicating with God through others.

Collectors Item:Practical Spiritual Life & Beyond

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. With this book, if you are new to Henri and his writings, you will search for them. If you are already familiar with Henri, you will surely go through them again

Who was your favorite character and why?

Of course, more than Henri, it is what his letter contains..the content.

What does Douglas James bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I am yet to read this myself

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. It is more than that, I will wait for one of his letter to digest, before I go to his next letter. I will also search for a relevant book by Henri with the theme in his letter

Any additional comments?

Thank you Audible. Will be good if more of Henri's books are available as audible editions

Must read, God is there in the suffering.

Pop Christian writers of today seem to not acknowledge a doctrine of suffering. Henry shows us that God understands our suffering and can connect with us through it.

Kate Bowler said something to the affect of: Get your Easter out of my Good Friday. I think Henry would understand this perfectly.

Blessed beyond words

My priest recommended Henry's writing. I looked at few of his titles and decided on this book in order to get to know the man behind the words. I am so glad that I did. Every letter shared contains little nuggets of wisdom. The book is a precious treasure trove of faith, hope and love. I feel as though I am a better person for having taken a glimpse in to the life of this wonderful man. Thank You Henri.
