A major new work from the winner of the Templeton Prize for 2015
In this major new work, the world-famous philosopher and humanitarian, Jean Vanier, encourages us to examine our faith and spirituality in order to work out our own answers to life's great questions.
What is the nature of reality? What are we living for? How can we love?
Now, in his ninth decade, [the author] has written this beautiful, searching book in which he takes us by the hand and walks us through these questions as he has lived and embodied and grown into them in the course of an extraordinary life. This book is a gift to us all, as is Jean Vanier himself.
- Krista Tippet, creator and host, On Being
Jean Vanier has, through all the years of his long life, stepped through the broken doors of the poor and found there community and joy. This book invites us to search for those doors and it assures us that, once we step through them, our restless search will end. We will be home. -
Ronald Rolheiser, from the Foreword
Jean Vanier is a “king of hearts” for our time. Read his beautiful book to refresh your belief in the gentleness of God, in the goodness of all your brothers and sisters, and in the beauty of yourself. - Timothy P. Shriver, Ph.D., Chairman, Special Olympics International
