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.

This is Henri Nouwen’s “secret journal.” It was  written during the most difficult period of his life, when he suddenly lost his self-esteem,  his energy to live and work, his sense of being loved, even his hope in God. Although he experienced excruciating anguish and despair, he was still able to keep a journal in which he wrote a spiritual imperative to himself each day that emerged from his conversations with friends and supporters.
