Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of The Return of the Prodigal Son, essential listening for Christians, Catholics, and all spiritual seekers.

We lead our spiritual lives in relationship with others. A faithful community gives us opportunities to worship, share burdens, offer forgiveness, and celebrate life. Wherever he went, Henri Nouwen created such communities, and within them, he offered spiritual direction.

Available as an audiobook for the first time ever, Spiritual Direction: Wisdom for the Long Walk of Faith is part of the Nouwen Trilogy. These convenient audio sessions let you adopt Nouwen as your personal spiritual director. As you listen, you will come to see the spiritual life as he did: a transformative journey that takes on meaning through interpersonal connections.

Each session was carefully prepared by Dr. Michael Christensen, an award-winning professor of Christian ministry and practice, and Dr. Rebecca Laird, who was Nouwen’s student at Yale Divinity School. Each volume of the Nouwen Trilogy collects Nouwen’s unpublished homilies, interviews, classes, and speeches, as well as excerpts from his published writings. Editing these works into a cohesive and definitive guide to the Christian life, Drs. Christensen and Laird memorialize his popular teachings.

With Nouwen’s guidance, you hold the key to true and lasting spiritual transformation.

This course is part of the Learn25 collection.

Relevant for the Modern World

Nouwen is a really great teacher. He writes beautifully about profound ideas, but never gets lost in the clouds. I highly recommend this book if you want actionable advice that will help improve your relationship with God in everyday life. The narrator (Colborne) does a nice job, and strikes the right tone and pace. 5 stars.

The best of Henri Nouwen

Nouwen was a profoundly compassionate and wise human who honestly struggled with the deep questions of meaning, purpose, faith and values. This newly released audio book was produced based on a carefully curated and edited collection of Henri's unpublished writings. If you are interested in an organized topical collection of some of Henri's big ideas, I highly recommend this book.

Brilliant

I really enjoyed this book. Especially the last chapter, The Flyer and the Catcher, what a wonderful image. I currently struggle to understand the concept of God, even though I've been a Christian for over thirty years. But I found Nouwen's voice so encouraging and his humility to engaging.
