The Inner Voice of Love: A Journey Through Anguish&hellip by Henri J. M. Nouwen

Wow...
Let me say it again: WOW!!! This book will change you. It does not matter who you are or what your story is...if you are a human being...this book will change you.
Stop reading this review for a moment. Go buy the book. Come back and I will tell you more:
OK then. Now that you have purchased a copy (if you haven't I'm serious-go do it) lets talk about the book you will soon posses---or should I say will soon posses you. This book is amazing.

All these songs express something of the love of God and the Ragamuffin's natural response of love for others. All the songs point straight to God and his love, righteousness, beauty, and kingdom-from following the example of Jesus' love and patience in the title track, to the message of God's unfolding kingdom in… Read more
