The late Henri Nouwen is one of this century's greatest spiritual writers and in one volume are included two of his most inspirational pastoral works. The Life of the Beloved asks how one can live a spiritual life in a completely secular culture. Our Greatest Gift is a meditation on dying and caring for the dying and is a classic essay on death and how to die well. This comes directly out of Nouwen's personal experience of being with the dying and asks 'How can my death become fruitful in the lives of others?'

Two classics in one volume by a deep and profound thinker.
