About the Author

Henri J.M. Nouwen was a world-renowned spiritual guide, counselor, and bestselling author of over forty books that many today consider spiritual classics. He taught at the universities of Harvard, Yale, and Notre Dame before becoming the senior pastor of L'Arche Daybreak in Toronto, Canada, a community where men and women with intellectual disabilities and their assistants create a home for one another.

Reviews

"Discernment uses Nouwen's material to open up the way to deep listening that is both comfort and challenge. Using Nouwen's insights allows the reader to hone a sensitivity to God alive in our midst."--Sister Simone Campbell, executive director of NETWORK
"A book on discernment from the writings of Henri Nouwen--what could be better? Tender and true, Nouwen's distinct voice brings a fresh perspective to this ancient and deeply Biblical practice. Discernment, when it is given, is always of gift. So is this book!"--Ruth Haley Barton, Founder, Transforming Center and author of Pursuing God's Will Together: A Discernment Practice for Leaders
"A fine book that delves into the answers to questions of what a Christian should do with his/her life....Nouwen's gifts as a writer for the spirit rarely failed, and this posthumous volume is as valuable as his other writings."--Library Journal
"An absolute gift to mind and soul. Christensen and Laird have seamlessly and thematically woven a luminous tapestry of both Nouwen's published and previously unpublished work on discernment. The result is an even richer and more accessible Nouwen than most of us have ever seen before."--Phyllis Tickle, author of Emergence Christianity
"For most people, the very word discernment implies something heady, private, and maybe even elitist. Henri Nouwen, as always, makes seemingly complex things personal, practical, intelligent, and very readable--all at the same time! This is a rich and helpful book."--Richard Rohr, O.F.M., author of Falling Upward
"Henri Nouwen continues to inspire and enlighten. One gets the sense that Henri is talking directly to you, and touching you deeply. The book reads like a seamless piece of writing that on almost every page has something that enlightens the mind or touches the heart at a deep level."--William A. Barry, S.J. coauthor of The Practice of Spiritual Direction
"Henri Nouwen was one of the greatest spiritual masters of our time. This exciting new collection gathers together in one volume Nouwen's wisdom about, insights on, and practice of spiritual discernment. It is, therefore, a treasure for all believers."--James Martin, SJ, author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything
"Henri Nouwen's writing is mystical, heartfelt, and wonder-filled. He has helped shape a whole generation of Christianity, and his legacy is still being written. I can't think of a better teacher on discernment. Read it, live it, and transform the world by doing small things with great love."--Shane Claiborne, author, activist, and wounded healer
"I knew Henri Nouwen well. He possessed a unique capacity to combine genuine wisdom with winsome simplicity, and could help people look deeply into themselves. In these writings these qualities shine through, and the down-to-earth practical hints on no-nonsense spirituality will be a source of refreshment for readers."--Harvey Cox, Hollis Research Professor of Divinity at Harvard and author of The Future of Faith
"I remember when I first encountered Henri Nouwen. He won my heart and became one of my mentors. In this new book, we gain insight into Henri's own mentors, and we have the sense that Henri is sitting beside us, helping us discern the signs of God in our lives."--Brian D. McLaren, author of A New Kind of Christianity
"In this volume we listen to this master spiritual teacher illustrate what it means to discern in daily life. As we "listen in" on Nouwen's own continual discernment, we learn that we too, can listen for God in the big and little of our lives, day in, day out."--Elizabeth Liebert, SNJM, author of The Way of Discernment
"Nouwen artfully explores how nature, our neighbors, and our own hearts reveal God's active presence all around us. Life-giving and beautiful, yet practical and wise, he invites all those who doubt, feel lost, wounded or broken to discover the beating heart of love at the center of world."--Diana Butler Bass, author of Christianity After Religion
"Nouwen hits the mark with his commentary on discerning vocation, presence, identity, and time.."--Spirituality & Practice
"Nouwen lives on for us as a spiritual friend. He takes us by the hand down that road where we'll meet with the timeless dimension of Jesus Christ, the life that the crucified and risen Jesus shares with us now."--St. Anthony Messenger
"Nouwen successfully argues that God is everywhere and in everyone. People must make the effort to read the signs of his presence. Hopefully, this book will nudge some of them to do just that."--National Catholic Reporter
