The Diary of His Final Year
Henri J. M. Nouwen
Paperback |304 pp |198 x 126 mm
This journal was written during the last year of Henri Nouwen's life, ending shortly before his death in 1996. In it, he describes his struggles with other people, his difficulty discerning what God intends for him, the direction his ministry is to take, and, woven throughout the book, are the continual, endless and beautiful themes of God's reconciling love, the Eucharist, forgiveness, friendship and love.
Three weeks after writing his final words of this book, Nouwen died following a heart attack.
