Item description for The Inner Voice of Love: A Journey Through Anguish to Freedom by Henri J. M. Nouwen...

The late Catholic priest and popular devotional writer addresses readers grieving over broken relationships or the loss of a loved one in a private journal kept over eight years that records his own battle with depression and spiritual emptiness. Reprint.

Publishers Description
This is Henri Nouwen's "secret journal." It was written during the most difficult period of his life, when he suddenly lost his self-esteem, his energy to live and work, his sense of being loved, even his hope in God. Although he experienced excruciating anguish and despair, he was still able to keep a journal in which he wrote a spiritual imperative to himself each day that emerged from his conversations with friends and supporters.

For more than eight years, Henri Nouwen felt that what he wrote was too raw and private to share with others. Instead, he published "The Return of the Prodigal Son, " in which he expressed some of the insights gained during his mental and spiritual crisis. But then friends asked him, "Why keep your anguish hidden from the many people who have been nurtured by your writing? Wouldn't it be of consolation for many to know about the fierce inner battle that lies underneath so many of your spiritual insights?"
For the countless men and women who have to live through the pain of broken relationships, or who suffer from the loss of a loved one, this book about the inner voice of love offers new courage, new hope, even new life.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Inner Voice of Love?

Healing  Mar 20, 2007
This book came to me at a perfect stage in my healing. One reads whatever one feels drawn to instead of just reading the book through page by page. It really added a depth of understanding to my journey and what I was truly going through. How refreshing! I was able to stay in some difficult places with God because of Henri's insight into spiritual things. I've bought the book for several friends who also love it!
beautiful  Jan 16, 2007
This short book tells the story of my life. It has been a great comfort to me. Drawn from Nouwen's own experiences of breakdown and collapse, the book is his private journal - written in brief entries of "spiritual imperatives" it reads like a daily devotional.

Filled with profound insight and a deep sense of love and compassion. Highly recommended for anyone who is struggling or wants to feel the presence of God's love in a more intimate way.
Thoughts on the Inner Voice of Love  Mar 23, 2006
One of Nowen's best books, coming from a highly personal experience. His sharing of intimate thoughts during a stage of intense suffering and loss and the process by which his relationship with God slowly lifted him from his dispair is a great source of comfort. The structure of the book, divided in individual "spiritual imperatives" makes it very powerful. One of the most moving and soul-nourishing book I have read.
Nouwen Did It Again!  Mar 4, 2006
This simple, readable book is an excellent treatise on discovering more about God's embrace. I have read it and highly recommend it to anyone seeking to find your place in God's world. It is awesome!
Have you been there?  Feb 12, 2006
I think those who haven't been where Henri Nouwen was, and weren't introduced to this "book" then will have a difficult time truly appreciating its gravity.

Thank God for Henri Nouwen.
