Turning the Wheel: Henri Nouwen and Our Search for God
Editors, Jonathan Bengtson and Gabrielle Earnshaw
Reflections on the life and legacy of the bestselling spiritual writer. The essays gathered here were presented at a conference in Toronto marking the tenth anniversary of Nouwen’s death. They included contributions from members of Nouwen’s family; companions and colleagues from the L’Arche community; friends; scholars; and notable writers including Mary Jo Leddy, Michael Higgins, Michael O’Laughlin, and Sue Mosteller. Together they assess the reasons for Nouwen’s extraordinary popularity (including his broad ecumenical appeal) and his spiritual message for today.
