Product Details


“A compelling reminder that the primary truths of Christ’s gospel suffice for our deepest needs.”U.S. Catholic

“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

“Amid global catastrophe, in an age heavy with anxiety about our collective future, the gentle voice of Henri Nouwen calls to us across time and space. In his signature simple yet profound way, he invites us with love to turn our gaze to Love itself: the presence of God in Christ, who is with us always. May this beautiful collection calm our fears and make us more attuned to that healing presence.”—Katelyn Beaty, author of A Woman’s Place

“Henri Nouwen remains one of my favorite authors. His words are full of grace and substance. With both simplicity and laser precision, Nouwen invites us to follow Jesus wherever He leads. Opening the pages, I found my anxious heart instantly settled. Our daily lives often end in exhaustion, full of restless wandering or idle passivity. Following Jesus leads us from fear to love—and in the secure place of love, we find life and connection to God and one another.” —Vivian Mabuni, speaker and author of Open Hands, Willing Heart: Discover the Joy of Saying Yes to God
“In Following Jesus, Nouwen offers us a lifeline from the all-consuming culture of stress and self, and invites us into an introspective yet others-focused faith, where Christ is at the center of our souls and our pursuits. I found great freedom in this book, especially in the prayers at the end of every chapter, and I know that in the digital age it will be a respite for every believer who is constantly ‘connected’ yet struggles with loneliness, comparison, and isolation. Henri is a gift to our generation, and the generations to come.” —Ashley Abercrombie, author of Rise of the Truth Teller, speaker, and cohost of the Why Tho? podcast

“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
