Reviews - What do customers think about Life of the Beloved: Spiritual Living in a Secular World?
A quick read that deserves to be re-read over and over Feb 27, 2008
This book is truly life-changing. I read this book after borrowing it from the library. I rarely buy books that I have already read, but this one is an exception. It is so full of wisdom that I want to carry it with me and read it often. Nouwen's writing is extremely clear and accessible, he is speaking to the reader as a good friend. And yet, his message could not be more profound. He leads us to a transformation of life that frees us from our deepest obstacles to joy in our lives. There is nothing more liberating than learning to become God's "Beloved", and thus becoming who we were made to be.
Life of the Beloved Oct 9, 2007
Insightful and uplifting. Conveys a concept of God's love in a way that can be understood by individuals who are not well read in Christian theology.
Dated but still superb spiritual writing Oct 7, 2007
I first read this book more than 10 years ago. I loved it then. It really touched me. I recently led a book group discussing this book. Some in the group found it to really touch them deeply giving them the balm they needed; others felt that it was a bit dated. They felt that this was written for a different time.
The book's initial purpose, a apology for faith, never really was met, but for the Christian seeking a deeper insight into faith this book is great.
A Great Read for those who want to go deeper Jun 27, 2007
This is a well written book on our relationship with each other and the beloved. I highly recommend it for those who are ready to be intimate with God
