Book Review: Love, Henri by Nouwen
Posted by ~Ang at 12:14 PM
Sometimes it feels a little like trespassing when reading another person's intimate letters. It makes me think about my own letters or emails and how I would feel if people were reading them in a book. That is a scary thought for me. However, if they could help someone learn to be more encouraging or a better friend, then it would be worth it. What an honor that we have a collection like this from a faithful saint.
This book is a small glance into the life of Henri Nouwen. These letters are helpful to us because they give us a glimpse of Christian fellowship and friendship. They are authentic and real. They encourage others to follow the Lord.
Prior to each letter, there are explanations so you can understand why it was written. This helps the reader understand the context of the letters.
This was a book that was well ordered. The hardback is sturdy and made with thick paper. It was made with good quality.
I received a copy of this book at no charge for the purpose of an honest review.
