A Spirituality of Homecoming

The Henri Nouwen Spirituality Series  

by John S. Mogabgab, Henri J. M. Nouwen
Discipleship Series

Renowned author Henri Nouwen offers a welcome message for our chaotic times: "Come home to God, and you will no longer feel like a stranger to yourself or the world."

Nouwen, a beloved pastor and teacher who authored more than 40 books, had an unusual ability to help readers see the simplicity and beauty of the spiritual life. The deep wisdom and sensitivity that shine forth in his writing encourage people to move closer to the heart of God and dwell in the knowledge of God's love.

In this brief book, Nouwen explores several facets of Christian discipleship:

  • Conversion
  • Freedom
  • Solidarity
  • Suffering
  • Joy
  • Prayer
  • Service

A Spirituality of Homecoming makes an excellent study for Lent but can also be used anytime by individuals or groups wanting a deeper understanding of discipleship.

As special projects editor for Upper Room Books from 2010 until his death in 2014, he oversaw the completion of the Henri Nouwen Series and A Guide to Prayer for All Who Walk with God.

Henri J. M. Nouwen was an internationally renowned priest and author, respected professor, and beloved pastor who wrote over 40 books on the spiritual life. Nouwen enjoyed an impressive academic career with positions at Notre Dame, Yale, and Harvard Universities. His commitment to explore the relationship between faith and justice led him to become involved in the civil rights movement and to make a number of trips to Central America. Nouwen lived the last ten years of his life as the pastor of L'Arche Daybreak in Toronto, one of the many communities founded by Jean Vanier. In L'Arche people with and without intellectual disabilities live and work together as peers, create inclusive communities of faith and friendship, and transform society through relationships that cross social boundaries. This became Nouwen's home until his death in September 1996.
