Publisher's Summary

How does one live a spiritual life in a secular world? Henri Nouwen responds from the depths of his heart to this dilemna posed by his friend Fred Bratman. Nouwen's own interpretive reading of the text lends a sense of immediacy to the audiobook.

Critic Reviews

"Nouwen uses Jesus' experience in baptism, 'You are my beloved Son,' and Jesus' life example of living as God's beloved, chosen, blessed, broken and given for the whole world to help readers see themselves as God's beloved." (Christian Living)

Listening Is Life Changing

Several years ago, when I first listened to this reading by Henri Nouwen in my car on my way to work, it didn't seem that big of a deal. But by the second day of listening on my commute, something happened. I noticed myself interacting with co-workers in good humor where only days before I experienced anger bordering on rage. Suddenly other people seemed transformed. I held the door for a woman, a total stranger, carrying packages at the mall and she said, "God bless you today." I stopped hating my job. I stopped hating the traffic on my commute. Externally, nothing in my day-to-day life was any better, but I felt better. Nothing outside me had changed, but something in me had changed.

Compelling

Compassionately read by the author in a way that makes what might otherwise be too removed from daily life into something that deeply informs. I am glad I listened.

Simply wonderful

Such a huge blessing --thank you Henri - We do need to know that we are the Beloved and live out our lives from that stand point - grounded and rooted in Christ.
