From the publisher

"The Living Reminder was like a visit from a friend I needed to speak with. The surprise for me was how much I needed to hear him say familiar things."
--National Catholic Reporter

The Living Reminder is a gift from Henry J.M. Nouwen--along with C.S. Lewis and Thomas Merton, one of the 20th century's most beloved and important spiritual writers. Subtitled "Service and Prayer in the Memory of Jesus Christ," Nouwen's book presents simple yet powerfully profound expressions of the joys of religious service, prompting the publication New Review of Books and Religion to note that we read Nouwen "to discover new possibilities in our own faith."

Let me start with a story about Elie Wiesel.

From the rear cover

How service is prayer and prayer is service

In this rich and deceptively simple book, beloved writer Henri Nouwen speaks--from the heart and from his own experience--of the joys and challenges of religious service. He shows how ministry cannot be separated from spirituality and reveals how anyone involved in religiously motivated service can act as a healing, sustaining, and guiding reminder of Jesus.
