    “Timeless wisdom for life from one of the great spiritual masters of our age.” (James Martin, S.J., author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage) 

    In this never-before-published work of inspiration, the best-selling author of The Return of the Prodigal Son offers a compelling case for why Christianity is still relevant, beautiful, intelligent, and necessary in the modern world.

    At one of the lowest points in Henri Nouwen’s life, he gave a series of lectures on the importance of following Jesus in an age of anxiety. Drawn from those talks, this new work reveals what sustained Nouwen to remain faithful to the teachings of Jesus and led him to become an icon of compassion and vulnerability. Here, he writes eloquently about calling and purpose, fear and hope. And he explains why - with so many choices available to the 21st-century seeker - the greatest reward for those looking for spiritual direction is rediscovering Jesus’ teaching on love. Along the way, Nouwen offers warm, insightful, practical habits to help listeners navigate the narrow, sometimes arduous, but ultimately fulfilling road of conviction and faith.

    Praise for Following Jesus

    “Few writers have influenced me more than Henri Nouwen. These newly published lectures offer fresh and timely insights amid the familiar cadences of Nouwen’s prose, written from a place of deep anxiety but even deeper hope.” (John Inazu, professor of political science, Washington University in St. Louis, author of Confident Pluralism)

    “In Following Jesus, beloved pastor and spiritual mentor Henri Nouwen guides the reader on the journey he has traveled as a follower of Jesus. Without minimizing the anxieties, fears, and brokenness that touch down in every reader’s story, Nouwen gently leads the way into a life that centers on Jesus and engulfs the follower with God’s love, a sense of belonging, and a purpose that endures. Truly a wise and welcome word for anyone in this age of anxiety.” (Carolyn Custis James, author of Half the Church: Recapturing God’s Global Vision for Women and Finding God in the Margins)

    Kritikerstimmen

    “In classic fashion, Henri Nouwen offers a compelling vision of what it means to follow Jesus that is stunningly simple and profoundly deep. In a world marked by debilitating anxiety, these reflections ground us in a way of being that helps us find our way to God and to one another. For nearly twenty years I have regularly come back to Nouwen’s words for encouragement and wisdom. As usual, he doesn’t disappoint. What a gift!”—Rich Villodas, lead pastor, New Life Fellowship

    “The late Dutch Catholic priest and spiritual writer Nouwen unpacks what it means to be a follower of Jesus in modern society in this excellent posthumous collection of essays. . . . For Christians interested in Nouwen, this collection of his writings will serve as a fine introduction.”Publishers Weekly
