Our Greatest Gift

Full Product Description

Here is a gentle book about coming to terms with death. Reflecting on the deaths of friends and loved ones, as well as his own, inevitable time - he looks at death as a gift and a chance for us all to impart hope to others. In embracing death, says Nouwen, one comes to ask: 'How can I so live that I can continue to be fruitful when I am no longer here among my family and friends?' In other words, people can make choices that effect not just one's self but also the generations to come - choices to care well, to die well and to embrace Grace. Henri J. M. Nouwen, Franciscan priest, professor, and scholar has spent the last decade working as pastor for a community of adults with learning difficulties in Toronto. This book explores two ideas - that death can be a welcome return to our spiritual source and that impending death offers us opportunities for intense and heartfelt love. 'Death leads to new life,' he says, because it gives us a chance to express gentleness and kindness toward others.

Our Greatest Gift by Henri J. M. Nouwen was published by HarperCollins in September 2009 and is our 46365th best seller. The ISBN for Our Greatest Gift is 9780061800269.
