A spiritual master shows us how to live a life of spiritual assurance in the midst of difficult life situations. This book was born in response to personal requests asked many times by a variety of people--many of whom are far removed from any traditional religious base--for Nouwen to describe the way to live a spiritual life in a material world. Nouwen's answer is both a challenge and a promise that life works, has deep meaning, and is worth all the pain and struggle.

A good book on what is a Christian. Empowering and helpful. Good for those who just have questions or just proclaimed the faith, and for those who have been a Christian for a while!

Life changing words from a disciple of Christ. Henri captures the essence of what is important in life, to be loved and to love. Love lasts while life does not.

Life of the beloved
The book puts forward some interesting points, but for myself it did not go into defending the person against the secular world. Or how to use the spiritual living against the secular world.

Clear, Concise, Sequential
I have read and enjoyed Henri J. M. Nouwen's writing over the years, and I was not disappointed by his "Life of the Beloved," a clear, concise and sequential exposition of what spirituality meant to him. In his earlier works, I experienced a somberness in the author. Such is not present in this or in his last book, "Adam," the latter recounting his experience with a severely handicapped young man who profoundly influenced Nouwen. Two good reads!

This is a great read. Unlike any book I've ready this year.
