I would like to see the spiritual writings of Henri J. M. Nouwen be made available in LOGOS.  Nouwen's thoughtful insight into the human mind and its understanding of God have been helpful in my spiritual growth.  I was first introduced to Nouwen's work through his little book The Return of the Prodigal written as a response to Rembrandt's painting of the same name.  I now own a couple of his other books, but would like to see all his writing in LOGOS.

Thank you for considering this request.

Yours because His,

Floyd

Blessings,
Floyd

Yes Yes, yes!

I own all of these in print form but am doing most of my reading digitally these days and would love to have them in Logos:

  • The Return of the Prodigal Son
  • The Wounded Healer
  • Life of the Beloved
  • The Inner Voice of Love
  • The Genesee Diary
  • The Way of the Heart
  • Creative Ministry
  • Reaching Out
  • Here and Now
  • Our Greatest Gift: A Meditation of Dying and Caring
  • Aging: The Fulfillment of Life
  • Intimacy
  • Clowning in Rome
  • Letters to Marc About Jesus
  • Behold the Beauty of the Lord: Praying with Icons
  • Seeds of Hope: A Henri Nouwen Reader

Also a biography of Nouwen would be nice.

What would be a good starter book for those unfamiliar with Nouwen's work?

I would recommend any of these three as a first book of Nouwen's to read:

  • The Return of the Prodigal Son
  • The Wounded Healer
  • Life of the Beloved

The first book I read by Nouwen was Adam; God's Beloved  and that led me on to reading many more.

I would really appreciate a Nouwen collection in Logos.

Great suggestionYes

Yes favourite author of mine, i remember years ago scanning in his Bread for the Journey so i could have it with me on my Palm Pilot (as at the time no ebook version was out there).

Triple Yes.

I'd also like to add "The Road to Daybreak: A Spiritual Journey" to the list of requested Nouwen works, please.

Philip Yancey's Soul Surviver has a whole chapter about Nouwen. I wonder why it's not in Vyrso...
