Publisher's Summary

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."

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "I had to focus but am so glad I did!"

    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!

    "Should be read by every Ministers"

    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.

    "Emotional Spiritual Maturity"

    Your heart and mind must be open to the move of God while listening to this book. It's all relevant information just hard to wrap your carnal mind around so you must listen with your spiritual ears through your heart. When you tell God you are available it also means to love the unlovable. NOT opening your heart and mind to unconditionally love spiritually will only allow your flesh to continue to run your body. God is calling for us as believers to go from faith to faith and glory to glory. This books will quicken your spirit to mature to another level og glory if you are totally committed to surrendering yourself to submit to the will of God for your life. The only way your going to enjoy walking by faith and implementing what this book has to offer is to let go and let God have His way by allowing God's holy spirit to convict you: GOD'S LOVE IS THE ONLY LOVE TO COMFORT THE WOUNDED HEART....INSIDE OF YOU TO COMFORTTHE WOUNDED HEART INSIDE OF OTHERS IN ORDER TO START LIVING IN A NEW WORLD ORDER TO GIVE GOD THE GLORY!!! Ultimately it's all about giving God the glory in everything we do. The book is only for those looking or ready to go to another level of Glory.
