The Road To Daybreak

A Spiritual Journey

by Henri J. M. Nowen


Price: £9.99
Publisher:DLT (Darton, Longman and Todd Ltd)
Published:November 2013

This is the story of Nouwen and L'Arche. It is the start of a romance, a journey that would ultimately change Henri Nouwen at a base level and cause him to find new meaning, insight and beauty in the most profound way. And in turn, to then go forward and share that insight and understanding in a life made new and in a faith changed that would in turn change many other peoples lives too.

Beautifully and honestly written—as are all Nouwens works—this series of diary entries capture for us the revelation of faith and change, the joy and even heartache of finding a new vocation, the reality of dealing with one's own bias and supposition and finding in that breakdown a miracle of insight.

If you never read another book by Nouwen then read this one, if you have ever struggled with the idea of disability then read this book, if vocation—or the duality of work and spirituality—is a struggle you are dealing with and you feel somewhat alone, then I would wholly suggest you read this book too.
