Henri Nouwen is widely known as one of the most beloved and prolific spiritual writers in contemporary times. Yet Nouwen’s own spiritual journey was marked by a restless quest for self-understanding, struggles with loneliness and self doubt, and an often anguished yearning for an experience of the divine. The questions he wrestled with are the same that speak to our own hearts: Who am I? Who is God? How do I know God loves me? Where is God when suffering surrounds me? How can I find interior peace in anxious, troubled times?
This unique retreat experience encourages us to profoundly reflect on these five existential questions. Here, readers will find connections to contemporary life, points for reflection, prayer-pauses for contemplation, and prompts for engaging in your own spiritual quest.
