In this hope-filled book, Nouwen offers a fresh interpretation of modern ministry. Here he offers inspiration to men and women who want to be of service in their Church or community but who have found the traditional ways of ministry alienating and ineffective. According to Nouwen, "the minister is called to recognize the sufferings of his time in his own heart and make that recognition the starting point of his service."

"One's overall response to this book has to be 'Yes.' Yes, this describes a style of ministry desperately needed by all of us." (The Christian Century)
This was a inspiring! I am accustomed with audiobooks to be able to keep busy while half listening. This one required for me to go back and really listen at key points. I am so glad I did. It was life changing!
Nouwen's commentary on the human context, condition, and cure is a relevant today, perhaps even more so, as when it was first written. Audible version well read and easy to listen to.
