Beyond The Mirror
Henri J.M. Nouwen
Reflections on Death and Life
1 CD/1hour (approx) Read by Paul Smith

Give Yourself A Gift: Listen to renowned spiritual guide Henri Nouwen reflect on the stuggles facing death, particularly when it comes knocking unexpectedly.

After his recovery from an accident in which his spleen was ruptured, Nouwen realizes he's very much alive, but to what purpose? In this search for meaning, his main questions become: Why am I alive? Why wasn't I found ready to enter the house of God? Why was I returned to a place where love is so ambiguous, where peace is so hard to experience and joy so deeply hidden in sorrow?

In this book, Nouwen examines his accident, his call in life and his attitudes toward others. His perspective on death changes as he realizes the doors to eternity are a part of living each day in the expectation of a new birth. Nouwen shares that the most difficult aspect of surviving his close brush with death is the blend of his continued yearning for the God of love, which comes with a need to share that love with others, and the gnawing sense of being unfulfilled. Nothing erases that anguish but to surrender in life as the beloved child of God.

HENRI J.M. NOUWEN is one of the most prolific and popular spiritual writers of our time. He wrote more than 40 books and taught at the University of Notre Dame as well as Yale and Harvard. For the 10 years before his death in 1996, he was part of the L’Arche Daybreak community in Toronto, sharing life with people with developmental disabilities.
