At his death in 1996, Nouwen, a Dutch Roman Catholic priest who spent much of his life in the United States, had become one of the most popular modern Christian spiritual writers. At least two biographies of Nouwen are already available: Jurjen Beumer's Henri Nouwen: A Restless Seeking for God (Crossroad, 1997) and Michael Ford's Wounded Prophet: A Portrait of Henri J.M. Nouwen (LJ 7/99), the latter not listed in LaNoue's bibliography. LaNoue (religion, Dallas Baptist Univ.) offers a well-written overview and partial critique of Nouwen's works, situating him in the context of contemporary American spirituality. Although she is a Protestant, this does not markedly affect her discussion of Nouwen's thought (the exception being a remark about celibacy). After giving a literary biography, LaNoue deftly traces the major themes in Nouwen's work: relationship to God, to self, and to others. She includes a Scripture index to Nouwen's books and a select, but fairly extensive, bibliography.
