In this brand-new, never before published work of inspiration, the bestselling 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. Includes a foreword by popular author Richard Rohr.

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 from the archives of the Nouwen estate reveals the deep turmoil and sometimes turbulent inner life of a man who has become an icon of compassion and vulnerablity for Christians and non-Christians alike. Here he writes eloquently about calling and purpose, fear and hope and explains why, with so many choices available to the twenty-first-century seeker, including atheism and secularism, the greatest reward for those looking for fulfullment is to choose belief in God. Along the way he offers warm, insightful, practical spiritual practices to help keep readers navigate the narrow, sometimes arduous, but ultimately fulfilling road of conviction and faith.

A HOMECOMING: This book demonstrates a return to basics and will remind readers of The Wounded Healer and The Inner Voice of Love in its inspirational tone and its practical take-aways to help readers build a deeper relationship with their faith.

STRONG SALES HISTORY: Henri Nouwen (1932-1996) is widely recognized as one of the most influential spiritual writers of the twentieth century. Nouwen’s books have been translated into more than 30 languages and have sold upward of seven million copies worldwide, resonating with people across the religious, spiritual, cultural, and political spectrum.

WIDE AUDIENCE: Nouwen’s refreshingly accessible prose will enable readers to wrestle with challenging questions, while his encouraging and sympathetic voice will support them along the journey. Nouwen is popular among Catholics, progressive Christians, Episcopals, and general spiritual seekers. He continues to travel well in the CBA.

“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
