Henri Nouwen: A Book of Hours is a beautiful new compilation based on the writings of Henri Nouwen, one of the greatest spiritual teachers of our time. It is edited and compiled by Robert Waldron.

Nouwen spent his life helping people respond to the universal “yearning for love, unity and communion that doesn’t go away.” He probed deeply at the meaning of living a spiritual life that embraces pain and suffering in ourselves and in the world, yet nevertheless gives us freedom to love deeply wherever we are.

More than a prayer book, Henri Nouwen: A Book of Hours, if followed faithfully, helps structure our daily routine with prayer; thus, not only sanctifying our relationship with God, but also sanctifying the minutes and hours of each day.

Awarding-winning writer Robert Waldron is a distinguished commentator on modern spirituality. He is the recipient of four N.E.H. fellowships and the author of ten books, including two works of fiction. Now retired from teaching, he lectures and conducts Merton, Nouwen, and "Poetry as Prayer" retreats. Earlier books include Walking with Kathleen Norris and Thomas Merton, Master of Attention, an Exploration of Prayer.
