    The Wounded Healer ePUB ô The Wounded MOBI :✓ wounded kindle, healer book, The Wounded download, The Wounded HealerThe Wounded Healer eBookI set out to read Henri Nouwen's 100 page book thinking I would finish it in a few days. Instead, as always with Nouwen, it took me several weeks to read. Every time I picked it up I found myself flipping back through my previous reading, and every time I set it down I found myself spending days processing the few pages I just completed.

    Nouwen is, at heart, a philosopher and a psychologist and his writing is organized according to a logical formula. Some may struggle against that structure or with that jargon, but if you can move past it you will find beautiful truth within and an amazing understanding of our very current culture (despite the fact that the book was written almost 30 years ago).

    Nouwen seemed to anticipate the hopelessness that prevails in our present society, the growing sense among our youth that they cannot create a better future for their world, and to that hopeless

Nuclear Man—to me—sounded like a 1960/70/80’s person (the book was published in 1979) disillusioned with the Cold War and the Super Powers, living from day-to-day in constant fear of complete annihilation. I recognize Nouwen’s Nuclear Man who, ‘has lost naïve faith in the possibilities of technologies and is painfully aware that the

    The Wounded Healer ePUB ô The Wounded MOBI :✓ wounded kindle, healer book, The Wounded download, The Wounded HealerThe Wounded Healer eBookI came to Henri Nouwen on the recommendation of Fred Rogers, and I was not disappointed. This slim volume is somewhat dated (I was pleasantly surprised to see two King Crimson songs quoted in the second essay, for instance), but its central message is timeless: that the very experiences that wound us most deeply are also those from which we can draw the greatest strength. Nouwen does not romanticize suffering; it is not suffering itself that is beautiful, but rather what human beings can do with it. Nouwen uses the metaphor of the Grand Canyon: a scar on the landscape in one sense, and yet in another sense a place of almost unbearable beauty. I use the metapho

    The Wounded Healer ePUB ô The Wounded MOBI :✓ wounded kindle, healer book, The Wounded download, The Wounded HealerThe Wounded Healer eBookI don't know that Nouwen was quite clear on what he was writing as he put his words onto paper. The mood of loneliness comes through clearly, and there is an insightful analysis of nuclear man (which is awfully close to what we would characterize as postmodern today). Nouwen includes a chapter that is kind of a case study of a conversat

    The Wounded Healer ePUB ô The Wounded MOBI :✓ wounded kindle, healer book, The Wounded download, The Wounded HealerThe Wounded Healer eBookI've read only two of Nouwen's books so far, and just from those I can say his books warrant a 2nd and maybe a 3rd reading. His insights are rich, dense, and provoke a lot of contemplation. This is most definitely not a book to peruse through, but something to meditate on. I love the title- it perfectly describes the subject of this marvelous short book. People in helping professions develop their compassion and ability to help heal others by being w

    The Wounded Healer ePUB ô The Wounded MOBI :✓ wounded kindle, healer book, The Wounded download, The Wounded HealerThe Wounded Healer eBookThis short book focuses on the paradox of ministry in a society of alienated individuals and the need to embrace our own frailty to make ourselves useful to others. I found it very useful in unwinding some myths I had accepted about ministry.

    The Wounded Healer ePUB ô The Wounded MOBI :✓ wounded kindle, healer book, The Wounded download, The Wounded HealerThe Wounded Healer eBookThe book looked like a quick read due to its brief ~100 page-length, but this was deceptive. I feel Nouwen's message in the first half of the book, while still relevant, represents the society and culture of my parents' generation. We have lost faith in technology, he writes. This is the opposite of the truth for Generation Y (and whatever the subsequent generations have been labeled). My peers put faith in little beyond science and technology. Writing in 1972, Nouwen perhaps saw an a
