Bread for the Journey

Bread for the Journey

Many daybooks contain passages from already published writings. But when bestselling author and priest Henri J. M. Nouwen was asked to create his own daybook, he took up the challenge of writing 365 new meditations that express his faith. Along the way, he found himself exploring his own belief system in greater depth than he had expected. Bread for the Journey examines many aspects of spirituality, including how we can become connected with Jesus, and where the Church is supposed to lead us. Nouwen's work not only provides us with food for thought, it also takes us inside the mind of one of the best-loved spiritual writers of our time.

Henri J. M. Nouwen (1932-1996) was the author of With Open Hands, Reaching Out, The Wounded Healer, Making All Things New, and many other bestsellers. He was the senior pastor of L'Arche Daybreak in Toronto, Canada, a community where men and women with mental disabilities and their assistants create a home for one another.

"Henri Nouwen shares personal moments, teaching moments, sacramental moments-moments of delight and surprise for anyone who cares to commune with him - and the One to whom he points each day of this journey. What a gift for us all! Bread for the Journey nourishes the soul."
