Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderfully insightful read I received this book for Christmas and while I've heard of some of the books it includes, such as 'Making All Things New,' I hadn't heard of some of smaller works. I'm glad of the omnibus version as otherwise, I may never have found the smaller work, 'Letters to Marc about Jesus' which deals with the story of Cleopas and his friend's encounter with Jesus on the road to Emmaus. A quote from that section that I like is as follows: 'Jesus had not said, "It's isn't nearly as bad as you think." He had said something entirely new: "The most tragic, the most painful, the most hopeless circumstances can become the way of liberation you long for most of all." A very thought-provoking, leisurely-paced but incredibly wisdom-filled read.

Editorial Reviews

“An instructive and gentle book. Henri Nouwen does more than tell us that solitude and community are essential for the spiritual life. His words impart a spirit that will better enable his readers to provide themselves with these seemingly contradictory necessities.”
