One of the best-loved spiritual writers of our time—an author ranked with C.S. Lewis and Thomas Merton—Henry J.M. Nowuen, takes a moving, personal look at human mortality in Our Greatest Gift. A meditation on dying and caring, Our Greatest Gift gently and eloquently reveals the gifts that the living and dying can give to one another. The beloved bestselling author of With Open Hands, The Wounded Healer, and Making All Things New shares his own experiences with aging, loss, grief, and fear in this important and life-altering work.

Review:

“…a very comforting book. …Nouwen offers us here a gentle, almost meditative book on coming to terms with death.” (Publishers Weekly)

“It’s a new way of looking at death, one with an upside.” (Miami Herald)

“One of my favorite ‘caregivers,’ Henri Nouwen challenges us to accept our death as part of our spiritual journey, not its end. …Nouwen continues to be a must read.” (Capital Times)

“On the long road it’s good to have Nouwen and his diving rod. Deftly he bends toward the drop of spiritual wisdom caked in the most ordinary things.” (Sister Helen Prejean, C.S.J., author of Dead Man Walking)
