Endorsements & Reviews-

"Glaser is clearly cloaked in Henri's mantle as he reflects on specific gems from Henri's works. The reader is treated to the enriched nourishment of Henri's thought enhanced by the insights and experience of his long-standing friend and colleague. Henri's Mantle is real food for the spiritual journey."
--Sue Mosteller, CSJ, literary Executrix of the Henri Nouwen Estate

"Henri's Mantle is a cloak of many colors, interwoven with rich seams of theological insight and underlain with a perceptive appreciation of Nouwen's work. Glaser's personal reminiscences of his mentor are particularly compelling, allowing us to look over the author's shoulder and observe the intimate world of a spiritual master. But through these meditations, we are given a glimpse into the soul of Glaser himself--and sense he, too, is close to God."
--Michael Ford, author of Wounded Prophet: A Portrait of Henri J. M. Nouwen and Father Mychal Judge: An Authentic American Hero

"Henri Nouwen's trapeze troupe trusted the firm grip of God's catching commitment to all of us: 'You are my beloved, on you my favor rests.' In this book, Glaser gracefully glides across various spiritual themes to illustrate God's grasp and how much Glaser is a full-fledged spiritual acrobat."
--Laurent Nouwen, Henri's youngest brother

"By weaving information about his own life and spiritual journey, Glaser shows how Henri's mantle has been gratefully received by him, and how eager he is to pass it on. This is a fine addition to the ever-expanding Nouwen collection."
--Wendy Wilson Greer, President, Henri Nouwen Society

"In life and death, Henri was in the vestibule of on incomplete Church and on unfinished world, welcoming others and their own experiences of God and justice. Glaser brilliantly evokes our own weaknesses, guiding us to keep our faith in the strength and love of the Divine Catcher who will lift us up and carry us home."
--Walter Sanchez, Universidad de Chile
