Jesus: A Gospel
Beloved spiritual writer Henri Nouwen is our guide in this unique retelling of the gospel story. Seamlessly woven from his many writings, Jesus: A Gospel juxtaposes gospel texts with Nouwen's own reflections on the life of Jesus.
Henri Nouwen, who died in 1996, was a Dutch priest and one of the most popular Catholic spiritual writers in the world. His Orbis publications include Adam: God's Beloved, With Burning Hearts, Peacework, The Selfless Way of Christ, and The Road to Peace. Michael O'Laughlin has received advanced degrees in theology from Harvard and Oxford Universities. While at Harvard he was Henri Nouwen's teaching assistant. His other books include Henri Nouwen: His Life and Vision and God's Beloved: Henri Nouwen.
"Just as Jesus mysteriously touched Henri Nouwen's life, in Jesus: A Gospel Henri can enable the spirit of God to touch us in a deep way." - Robert J. Wicks
