I keep hearing all these awesome things about a guy named Henri Nouwen. And then a while back in my RSS feeder, I saw this quote from page 51 of his book, Sabbatical Journey:
Today I personally believe that while Jesus came to open the door to God’s house, all human beings can walk through that door, whether they know about Jesus or not. Today I see it as my call to help every person claim his or her own way to God.
Is anyone else who would consider themselves to be an evangelical a little disturbed by such a statement? I want to get this book now and give it a good read so that I can hear his whole argument. If this is ripped out of context, I’d like to see what that context is, because this doesn’t sound much like biblical teaching on this topic (John 14:6, Acts 4:12, etc.).
