Book Review: Love Henri

Love, Henri

Letters on the Spiritual Life
by Henri J.M. Nouwen

Crown Publishing

Convergent Books

Pub Date 04 Oct 2016

I was given a copy of Love Henri through the publisher and their partnership with Netgalley in exchange for my honest review, which is as follows:

This book includes letters of Henri Nouwen’s spanning from December.29th.1973 to August 4th 1996, just a few weeks before his death.

We learn in this book that Henri Nouwen took part in the March on Selma.

In this book Henri sends encouraging letters to friends as well as a couple who lost their daughter in a horse racing accident as well as to friends who needed encouragement, in each letter his Love for God shines brightly.

This book reminds us just how strong Henri Nouwen held on to his faith and convictions as well as how he used the art of letter writing to reach out to the others.

I give this book five out of five stars.

Happy Reading…
