A wonderfully comforting and consoling read,
This review is from: The Inner Voice of Love: A Journey Through Anguish to Freedom (Paperback)
I would massively recommend this book for anyone feeling hopeless,hurt,let down, abandoned or unloved - or simply for anyone seeking spiritual nourishment.It is the most comforting and reassuring read, really seeming to get to the heart of what it means to be human.Structured as a series of "vignettes",each not much more than a page long, Henri Nouwen offers insight, reflection and inspiration for those grappling with emotional and relationship challenges. Nouwen has such a deeply compassionate and empathic take on things - the whole book cries out "I hear you, I've been there, I feel your pain". And it offers hope. Nouwen's Christianity is surely how it should all be - simplicity,love before judgement, solidarity and healing.
