Coming together in one revised edition are three classic works by Henri J.M. Nouwen: Creative Ministry, The Wounded Healer, and Reaching Out. The common thread in these volumes is the author's melding of spirituality and service. In Creative Ministry Nouwen examines teaching, preaching, individual pastoral care, organizing, and celebrating. In Wounded Healer, he calls upon ministers to become stewards of their own pain. And in Reaching Out, Nouwen probes the spiritual life as a journey between loneliness and solitude, hostility and hospitality, illusion and prayer. One of the legacies of the writings of Henri J.M. Nouwen is his ability to make clear the deep connections between spirit and sensitivity.
