Bread for the Journey is a book with short spiritual reflections for each day of the year. In a succinct and penetrating way Henri Nouwen speaks not only about the main themes of life, such as love and work, solitude and community, but also about the main themes of faith, such as Jesus and the sacraments, the Church and the Communion of Saints, prayer and service. In a personal and engaging way Henri Nouwen invites us to journey with him and encourages us to develop a life-giving spirituality for ourselves.
