Publisher's Summary

"This book is my secret journal," Nouwen wrote. At first he had no intention of sharing this personal diary of the difficult months when he felt all meaning in his life was missing and all ahead seemed a dark, bottomless abyss. In spite of his inner turmoil, Nouwen recorded the descent into his heart in these 63 journal entries. Friends persuaded him that sharing his painful soul-searching might help others who also struggle to embrace life with joy.

Throughout his life, Nouwen longed for deeper relationships with others and with God. "Do not hesitate to love and to love deeply," he urges. While your heart may break, he says, you will then have a choice - to become bitter or to stand in your pain and become fruitful with God as the spiritual guide of your life. The inner voice is a voice of love.

    "Heaven Sent Wisdom For Earthly Restlessness."

    The love and acceptance of God as described by
    Henri AJ Nouwen in his beautiful book The Inner Voice of love...is brought to life.by the deep gentle
    Voice of Murray Bobo.
    I lay in bed at night and listened before sleep.
    I let the words wash over me.
    Try doing the same. Total peace and calm awaits you.

    "Wonderful book full of spiritual insight!"

    Wonderful book full of spiritual insight! I am grateful to have encountered it! I love listening to it (on my third read); every chapter uplifts my heart in some way. A great read if your soul is experiencing darkness.

    "Outstanding self-motivation book. #truth"

    The only thing that annoyed me a bit was the narrator. Otherwise, this is must-listen-to.

    "Disappointment"

    This book should not have been published; it is both unfair to Nouwen and uncomplimentary to his many splendid books.
