A very profound book but a difficult read. A nun-friend recommended this book when I was in one of my difficult periods in my life. And it indeed gave me comfort and brought light to my own darkness. It is to be read by bits; choosing the topic that can respond to your particular need so as to let Nouwen's writing relate well with your own journey in your spiritual life. ( )

Reflections by the author when he went through a difficult period of depression about eight years before he died. Thought-provoking, probably helpful for any Christian in a similar stage. ( )

Written out of a time of anguish and sorrow, these short and direct spiritual directions were Nouwen's words directed to his own heart. Indeed, they'll speak also to your heart - perhaps especially where it hurts. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0385483481, Paperback)

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 Nouwen's thoughts has the raw complexity of real honesty:
Your body needs to be held and to hold, to be touched and to touch. None of these needs is to be despised, denied, or repressed. But you have to keep searching for your body's deeper need, the need for genuine love. Every time you are able to go beyond the body's superficial desires for love, you are bringing your body home and moving toward integration and unity.
--Michael Joseph Gross
