The Inner Voice of Love: A Journey Through Anguish to Freedom is a collection of passages from Henri Nouwen's journals, written during a period when his self-esteem evaporated, his energy to work disappeared, and God seemed entirely unreal. This is not a book to be read straight through: each short chapter takes time to digest, because, like the following passage, each of ...more

مجرد رأي أنا عايز اضيفه
طبعاً من حقكم كل الحق كناشرين للكتاب بعدم السماح أو عدم الموافقة لوجود الكتاب على الانترنت
لكن هو بمجرد نزول الكتاب على أى موقع .. كل المواقع بتاخد الكتاب وتنزله بلينكات جديدة وهكذا إلى أن يصبح من الصعب إلغاء وجود الكتاب من على الانترنت
الكتير من المواقع ديه هدفها خدمة الناس بتوفير الكتب ديه ومعتقدش إن ليهم ربح من توفير لينك الكتاب
فبما انكم انتم موقع هدفه الخدمة ومؤسسة لخدمة المشورة .. فنشر الكتاب بين الناس على الانترنت يفيد الناس ولا يقدم أى ضرر .. فهي أيضاً تعتبر خدمة
مرة أخرى أكرر أن لكم حقوق الملكية الفكرية للكتاب ومن حقكم طلب حذفه من المواقع
لكن أتمنى منكم كمؤسسة خدمية أن تقوموا بإتاحة الكتب الخاصة بكم على الانترنت لأنها تسمح بعدد أكبر للناس بقرائتها والاستفادة منها

أسف على الإطالة
شكراً(less)

This is a book to be read and absorbed in small doses. It is a deeply personal and very honest book written during a time of great pain. But it is a hopeful book. It's as though Nouwen is writing to himself from place of hope. My sense is that, through effective advice and sheer force of will, Nouwen imagined a place of hope from which he could write to himself sitting in despair. From this imagined place, Nouwen looks back and sees a path to wholeness, a path to an existential, a real place of ...more

الكتاب الأول و الوحيد بالنسبة إليّ في مواجهة الألم. الكتاب خبرة شخصية للأب هنري نووين أو بالأحرى مجموعة خبرات عن الألم وعن الحب والصداقة والعلاقة مع الله. متنوّع وغني. كنت أبحث عن إجابات لما أجد لها ردود ووجدت محاولة الإجابة نابع من خبرة الأب نووين الشخصية.

بالنسبة لي كان كتاب حي تفاعلي ملهم !
قريته علي فترة طويلة جداً وفي ظروف نفسية متباينة ..
في بدايته كان ممل وغير ومفهوم، لكن بعد كدة كانت كل مقالة بترد علي فكرة بتراوضني بشكل مخيف في بعض الاحيان !

a book to remember !

These are selections from a journal that Henri Nouwen wrote when he was in the midst of a very dark season in his life. He writes in the second person singular, saying things like, “You are called to live out of a new place, beyond your emotions, passions, and feelings. As long as you live amid your emotions, passions, and feelings, you will continue to experience loneliness, jealousy, anger, resentment, and even rage, because those are the most obvious responses to rejection and abandonment.” W ...more

Imagine that a priest, writer, and professor with great spiritual wisdom underwent a spiritual collapse. What would he tell himself in these “dark nights of the soul”? What kind of wisdom would he apply to his own life after fifty years of theoretical and practical investigation of his relationship with God? When at the edge of despair, what would he remember the most?

Henri Nouwen’s personal spiritual journal of the most difficult period of his life reads just like that – these are deeply person

الكتاب عميق جدا و الكاتب قدر يوصل في الكتاب ده لحاجات صعب جدا حد يقدر يوصلها و يعبر عنها بالأسلوب ده
الكتاب بيتكلم عن الجوانب النفسية في الألم او الضيق بشكل عام
الكتاب بيكسفك قدام نفسك .. بيكشفلك كل حاجة جوه نفسك و بيكلمك عن كل حاجة بتفكر فيها او بتحس بيها
الكاتب ممكن يكون صادم لناس كتير بشكل كبير جدا .. الكلام مش بسيط و الكلام ماينفعش يتقري بسرعة كده و خلاص

Tainted. My point of view is too tainted to look at this work objectively, and anyone who reads my review of this book should know that.

My reaction to this book was deeply personal and disturbing. This book is a compilation of Nouwen's journal entries over a series of months when he felt great dispair and angst. His colleagues felt the journal would serve as a great instructional tool for others, and hence this little book was born.

However, drawing from my personal experience, I could clearly he

A collection of private journal entries by an openly gay but celibate priest, The Inner Voice of Love is a meditation on accepting the kinds of love that are available when the love you want is not available. Because the author was a priest, many of the meditations specifically address accepting divine love, not as a metaphor but as a real, personal gift from an ever-present deity, so I personally had to translate a lot of the concepts into metaphors; but even so, these meditations create a spac ...more

What an excellent book. Nouwen has really been through it, and so you trust him as you helps guide you through your troubles. There were so many excellent and deep insights in this book. It took me a while to get through, but that is because it is a series of devotionals meant to be read slowly and steadily. I can see a lot of growth in my life in the last year, and this book is a significant part of that.

This is one of the best books that you will find that contributes a true Christ centered vi

This book begins with a warning not to read too many of these spiritual imperatives at once and I think that is good advice. There is so much to contemplate with each entry in Nouwen's secret journal. I especially liked "Control Your Own Drawbridge" and "Own Your Pain." I found myself feeling sad for Nouwen as I read, though (even though I knew the purpose of the book was for the reader to reflect on him/herself as opposed to viewing it as a memoir). I took some comfort in the hope that he is no ...more

Healing, hopeful

This book is excellent for anyone who is going through the pain of rejection, abandonment, self-doubt or feelings of worthlessness. You do not need to be Christian to recognize Nouwen's universal truths. Every small chapter, or "spiritual imperative" is a gem, worth highlighting in its entirety. I read this book once through, and then went back through slowly to highlight particularly helpful passages. Now I am eager to retreat for awhile, to do the solitary work I must do to bec

'Do not read too many of these spiritual imperatives at once! They were written over a long period of time and need to be read that way...

Too much salt might spoil it, but a little at a time can make it tasty!'

I took Nouwen's suggestion to heart - never rushing. It was worth it. For the discouraged or those of us who often sense a distance from God, Nouwen's words continually reminded me that I am not alone.

This is Henri Nouwen's journal that takes us through his own personal journey with depression. He was encouraged to publish it so others could see that the master too was human. An important work, especially for us novices. When you are struggling with your own path, it is good to see that those who continued on had struggles to. I give this volume to all I work with who are new on the journey.

I felt free to find myself in Nouwen's own experience. Being an academic who is trained to separate myself from all I read and write, it was such a relief to let my guard down, and allow my painful tears to fall. I probably would not have given this book five stars if I hadn't read it at such a painful, doubt-filled time of my life--but then again, one reads this book at such a time as this. So perhaps all five stars have been well earned. I am no more free or healed compared to when I started t ...more

Henri Nouwen is one of my favorite authors. I resonate quite a bit with his introspective nature and keen awareness that this world is not our home. I enjoy his thoughts about solitude, community, dependence, and a variety of other relationship dynamics.

As I said in another review, this book had a powerful impact on me in conjunction with Brennan Manning's Ruthless Trust.
I have profited from all Nouwen's books, but this and The Return of the Prodigal have been the most important.

One of my favorite books to use as a daily devotional. Can be read year after year and enjoyed with each reading. God has used this book to encourage, convict, and guide me as I seek Him.

I can relate to so much of what Nouwen wrote. All the difficult emotions, anguish, pain and hope and love all mixed together in one intense mix.
I'm glad Nouwen decided to share these personal feelings he recorded, because there's many of us, that like Nouwen have to live through this and it is a very lonesome process.
Knowing that others, certainly others who we have much respect for, had gone through it too, is relieving.
It brings hope.
Hope that maybe we are good enough after all, maybe ther

I had resisted doing the Goodreads challenge because I read stuff like this which is of no interest to my friends. But I read it so I'll count it. It's been my bedside reading for a while.

This is a book of short (1 to 3 pages) meditations by Nouwen when he was experiencing a dark time in his spiritual life. They are easy to identify with and uplifting to read, especially knowing that he came out of this stronger.

Henri Nouwen had the ability to reach all people with his compassion and faith. He suffered a severe depression when nothing meant anything or made sense to him. He had lost a close friend in a rift he never disclosed, but the loss was sufficient to incapacitate him and send him to a treatment facility. This book is the diary of his journey from darkness to light. It is written in easy-to-read, one-page chapters that he recommends be read in many sitttings, not all at once and not necessarily in ...more

A deeply personal and reflective look at one disciple's journey back to spiritual wholeness. Nouwen wrote these words for himself during a time of "self-imposed exile" when he was seeking healing and restoration in the wake of a rupture relationship that caused deep pain.

This book is designed around short, meditative essays that focus on how to hear the inner voice of God's love in the realities of life. It is provocative and truthful about life's pain. Yet, it retains a resiliency that will enc

Surviving painful experiences in life such as a depressive episode can, in Henri Nouwen’s words, “make you more compassionate and understanding toward others.” It also changes those around you who experience it with you. As long as you are rooted in a Christian community, “the journey you are choosing is Jesus’ journey, and whether or not you are fully aware of it, you are also asking your brothers and sisters to follow you. Somewhere you already know that what you are living now will not leave ...more
