Discernment: Reading the Signs of Daily Life by Henri J. M. Nouwen

Discernment: Reading the Signs of Daily Life features the wisdom that spiritual leader and counselor Henri J. M. Nouwen brought to the essential question asked by every Christian and seeker: What should I do with my life?
Nouwen emphasizes listening to the Word of God—in our hearts, in the Bible, in the community of faith, and in the voice of the poor as a way to discern God’s plan.
Although the late Henri J. M. Nouwen counseled many people during his lifetime, his principles of discernment were never collected into a single volume. Now, in association with the Nouwen Legacy Trust, Michael Christensen—one of Nouwen’s longtime students—and Rebecca Laird have taken his coursework, journals, and unpublished writings to create this and other books in the series exploring God’s will for your life.

In typical Nouwen fashion, Henri speaks humbly and from his loving heart, as though you were sitting together with a dear friend, about how to listen to God's voice. Henri shares his deep wisdom and encourages his readers to practice the traditional disciplines and a simplicity of life. By setting aside time for silence and reflection, he tells how God's will can be discovered and how a disciple can find the courage within to live faithfully, to make good spiritual choices, based on the Holy Scriptures.
