Can our wounds become our greatest gift? J. Heinrich Arnold was a broken man. Yet those who knew him said they never met another like him. Some spoke of his humility and compassion; others of his frankness and earthy humor. In his presence, complete strangers poured out their darkest secrets and left transformed. Others met him with hatred.
Writer Henri Nouwen called him a prophetic voice and wrote of how his words touched me as a double-edged sword, calling me to choose between truth and lies, selflessness and selfishness... . Here was no pious, sentimental guide; every word came from experience.
Who was this extraordinary yet simple man? In this gripping and richly spiritual book, Peter Mommsen tells the dramatic true story of the grandfather he hardly knew. Read it, and you will never look at your own life the same way again."
