In the Name of Jesus

Reflections on Christian Leadership

Hen­ri Nouwen was a spir­i­tu­al thinker with an unusu­al capac­i­ty to write about the life of Jesus and the love of God in ways that have inspired count­less peo­ple to trust life more ful­ly. Most wide­ly read among the over 40 books Father Nouwen wrote is In the Name of Jesus. For a soci­ety that mea­sures suc­cess­ful lead­er­ship in terms of the effec­tive­ness of the indi­vid­ual, Father Nouwen offers a counter def­i­n­i­tion that is wit­nessed by a com­mu­nal and mutu­al expe­ri­ence.” For Nouwen, lead­er­ship can­not func­tion apart from the com­mu­ni­ty. His wis­dom is ground­ed in the foun­da­tion that we are a peo­ple called.” This beau­ti­ful guide to Chris­t­ian Lead­er­ship is the rich fruit of Hen­ri Nouwen’s own jour­ney as one of the most influ­en­tial spir­tiual lead­ers of the 20th century.
