Sabbatical Journey: The Diary of His Final Year
by Henri J.M. Nouwen
In September 1995, Nouwen took a year's sabbatical to write, pray and visit family and friends. Although he had little time to write, as a spiritual discipline he kept a daily journal enriched with vivid observations and soul-searching reflections. Sabbatical Journey records the flowering of friendship and prayer during what would be his final year on earth.
