As a fan of Henri Nouwen, I was a little perturbed that on receiving the book it had been produced after his death and thus was the product not of his own crafting but rather those who had worked closely with him. However, I should not have been concerned. The style keeps closely to that which I have become familiar in the way that Henri Nouwen expressed his insights and his spirituality, exposing his vulnerability but inspiring our own life journey. Most of the book is said to come from his personal notes. I have already given the book as a gift to one 80 year old friend from a traditional faith background who has found the layout of the book such an encouragement in the reading of an individual chapter, contemplation and reflection in the form of taking an individual "retreat". It has been inspirational to the deepening and maturing of her faith.

This book contains a wealth of encouragement to anyone who is struggling with prayer and spiritual direction. It is written for Directors and seekers alike. It also has plenty of ideas for moving deeper into prayer and contemplation. The chapters take one question at a time and enable the reader to move on quickly or slowly according to individual need. It encourages every reader to find a spiriual director to share the journey, and has plenty of useful information for those who are already active in this ministry.

Excellent, accessible and well worth the effort. A Henri Nouwen classic that is challenging and engaging. Remains a timeless resource!

I love the book but the quality of the pages is very poor because the paper is thin and therefore the type is not as clear. Very disappointing because I ordered 2 extra copies for friends as Christmas presents.

This book is to be highly recommended both for people seeking help with personal spiritaul direction and for those involved in directing others. Nouwen always speaks directly and with great wisdom and humility

This is a very special treatise on Spiritual Direction which reaches into the heart of explanation and understanding. Excellent value for those who are truly seeking.
