This week marked the 20th Anniversary of Henri’s Nouwen’s death (Sept. 20).

In remembrance of his life, we have picked a few books of the many he published as a sort of introductory guide. 

 

3.  The Wounded Healer: Ministry in Contemporary Society

This is a book that every pastor should read. Weaving keen cultural analysis with his psychological and religious insights, Nouwen has come up with a balanced and creative theology of service that begins with the realization of fundamental woundedness in human nature. Emphasizing that which is in humanity common to both minister and believer, this woundedness can serve as a source of strength and healing when counseling others.
