A Combined Edition of the Nouwen Classics In Memoriam and A Letter of Consolation
Author: Henri J. M. Nouwen
Foreword by: Barbara Brown Taylor
Trim size: 5 x 7 inches
With combined sales of over 200,000 copies, Henri Nouwen’s classic works In Memoriam and A Letter of Consolation are put together in one volume for the first time in A Sorrow Shared, forming a Henri Nouwen biography of grief that offers an intimate glimpse into his grieving process following the death of his mother.
On the occasion of his mother’s death in 1978, Henri Nouwen wrote, “I want to reflect on this event because, although it is not unusual, exceptional, or extraordinary, it remains in many ways unknown and unfathomed. It is indeed in the usual, normal, and ordinary events that we touch the mystery of human life.”
In a first-ever combined English edition of Nouwen classics In Memoriam and A Letter of Consolation, this beloved spiritual giant of the twentieth century explores the depths of his grief and writes tenderly and wisely to his bereaved father, yearning for the light of Christ in the darkness of loss and sorrow. In Memoriam, Nouwen’s intimate, deeply touching account of his mother’s death, offers a gentle invitation to all those in grief to open themselves to a deeper sense of faith and trust in God. A Letter of Consolation—in which Nouwen writes to his father six months after his mother’s death—ponders the journey of bereavement itself.
The two books put together form a satisfyingly cohesive whole and depict a wise and honest wayfarer who guides and comforts his readers as they reflect on and struggle through similar experiences.
