Newly repackaged with a Nouwen series look, this is a beautiful collection of intimate writings from one of the best-loved spiritual writers of our time to his nineteen-year-old nephew
Letters to Marc About Jesus is a beautiful collection of Henri Nouwen’s very intimate and very enlightening writings to Marc, his nineteen-year-old nephew, who struggles to find his true path in a world of confusion and apathy. Written with Nouwen’s characteristic grace and wisdom, these letters bear witness to his conviction that anyone can find lasting spiritual fulfillment if they simply take the time to maintain a daily awareness of Jesus in every aspect of life. Powerful and profound, Letters to Marc About Jesus is Nouwen at his best--teacher, guide, and mentor--and will provide the direction and inspiration necessary for any believer to change his or her life.
“Living spiritually is more than living physically, intellectually, or emotionally. It embraces all that, but it is larger, deeper, and wider. It concerns the core of your being a human person. It’s possible to lead a very wholesome, emotionally rich and ‘sensible’ life without being a spiritual person: that is to say, without knowledge or personal experience of the terrain where the issues of meaning and of the goal of our human existence lie concealed.” -from Letters to Marc About Jesus
