  • About the Author

Hannah Whitall Smith (1832–1911) did not have an easy life. Of her seven children, only three lived to adulthood. In spite of, and perhaps because of, her unhappy circumstances, she was able to advise Christians on how to find and keep the joy of the Lord in A Christian’s Secret of a Happy Life, her widely read and much loved book of Christian Holiness theology. Constant themes in her writings include the assurance of salvation and freedom from anxiety, as she portrays the richness of God’s love and His desire to relate to us as the perfect Parent, Savior, Protector, and Friend. Hannah was also active in the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union.

This book is for those who are willing to strive for holiness in obedience to our beloved Master, the Lord Jesus Christ.

The purpose of this book is to help you understand the rapidly expanding world of the occult so that you can not only cleanse yourself from any involvement in it, but also so that you can avoid its traps.

The Wounded Healer

Title:                The Wounded Healer: ministry in contemporary society

Author:           Nouwen, Henri, 1932-1996.

Imprint:         IMAGE BOOKS, 1972.

Collation:      100 pages;138*207 mm

ISBN:              0-385-14803-8

Class Code:   进深 T W H   -HJMN

  • Summary

The Wounded Healer is a hope-filled and profoundly simple book that speaks directly to those men and women who want to be of service in their church or community, but have found the traditional ways often threatening and ineffective. In this book, Henri Nouwen combines creative case studies of ministry with stories from diverse cultures and religious traditions in preparing a new model for ministry. Weaving keen cultural analysis with his psychological and religious insights, Nouwen has come up with a balanced and creative theology of service that begins with the realization of fundamental woundedness in human nature. Emphasizing that which is in humanity common to both minister and believer, this woundedness can serve as a source of strength and healing when counseling others. Nouwen proceeds to develop his approach to ministry with an analysis of sufferings — a suffering world, a suffering generation, a suffering person, and a suffering minister. It is his contention that ministers are called to recognize the sufferings of their time in their own hearts and make that recognition the starting point of their service. For Nouwen, ministers must be willing to go beyond their professional role and leave themselves open as fellow human beings with the same wounds and suffering — in the image of Christ. In other words, we heal from our own wounds. Filled with examples from everyday experience, The Wounded Healer is a thoughtful and insightful guide that will be welcomed by anyone engaged in the service of others.

  • From the back cover

In this hope-filled and profoundly simple book, Nouwen offers a radically fresh interpretation of modern ministry. Here he inspires devoted men and women who want to be of service in their church or community, but have found the traditional ways of ministry alienation and ineffective.

According to Nouwen, ministers are called to identify the suffering in their own hearts and make that recognition the starting pint of their service. For Nouwen, ministers must be willing to go beyond their professional, somewhat aloof role and leave themselves open as fellow human beings with the same wounds and suffering as those they serve. In other words, we heal from our wounds.

The inspiring story of a courageous woman who survived three tragedies that took the lices of her husband and children.

‘Mrs. Steel, it’s getting colder. The rain is turning to ice. There has just been an accident on the 37 bypass. I’m sorry to have to tell you that your children and their friend have just been killed.’

Suddenly I felt as if I had been pushed over a high cliff into a wild, seething sea, unable to swim. But remarkably, at that very moment, I felt myself in the strong embrace of the Spirit of God.

I was lifted upward, above the cold winter trees, sweetly, securely, into the warm presence of my Father. With a calm, which I instinctively knew had its source from beyond my own being, I heard myself say, “Officer, I know where they are. They are with God.”
