Scope and content

File consists of a letter from Nancy R. Faus, Brightbill Professor of Practical Theology at Bethany Theological Seminary (Oak Brook, IL) and a draft of a letter from Faus to Bill Barry at Doubleday, both regarding the revision of The Wounded Healer using gender inclusive language. Faus is concerned with how the non-inclusive language of Nouwen's older works, still valuable for those preparing for ministry, alienates female seminary students and others.
