Book Overview

Seven million copies of his books in print This daily devotional from the bestselling author of such spiritual classics as The Return of the Prodigal Son and The Wounded Healer offers deep spiritual insight into human experience, intimacy, brokeness, and mercy.

Nouwen devoted much of his later ministry to emphasizing the singular concept of our identity as the Beloved of God. In an interview, he said that he believed the central moment in Jesus's public ministry to be his baptism in the Jordan, when Jesus heard the affirmation, You are my beloved son on whom my favor rests. That is the core experience of Jesus, Nouwen writes. He is reminded in a deep, deep way of who he is. . . . I think his whole life is continually claiming that identity in the midst of everything.

You Are Beloved is a daily devotional intended to empower readers to claim this truth in their own lives. Featuring the best of Nouwen's writing from previously published works, this devotional will propel the canon forward as it draws on this rich literature in new and compelling ways. It will appeal to readers already familiar with Nouwen's work as well as new readers looking for a devotional to guide them into a deeper awareness of their identity in Jesus.

   Bad theology is the worst taskmaster
What I got was a book of good-natured nonsense. Back to the Scriptures, I go for the truth about God's unconditional love and mercy : Behold what kind of love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are John 31 ''. This verse tells more truth than this whole book.
   We are beloved, and remembering that is important
It is important to have daily meditations that provide positive and encouraging food for thought, especially in these times. I know that I have to change my thinking to be aware of my thinking. Many of us have said that we want the world to change, yet we do not change the way we think or approach the world. I must first try to live a life of love, then maybe I can help other people to think about what they would like to change in their selves.
   The Best of Nouwen
This offers the best of a great theologian, not for study, but for prayer and contemplation.
   Henri Nouwen
Like Henri's Bread for the Journey, A Daybook of Wisdom and Faith, this book contains focused nuggets. Unlike Bread for the Journey, this book, You are the Beloved, was not written by Henri specifically. Rather, it is a collection of exerpts from all his books culled masterfully into this volume. If you experience one of God's books, you will immediately know both Henri and God's voice and love.
   Great to spend a year!
I read over 40 books by Henri Nouwen. This is an excellent representation of the topics and truths that dominated Henry's life and ministry.
   Captures the essence of Nouwen's writings in bite-sized pieces
This was such a beautiful way to start each day reading a few short paragraphs from one of Nouwen's other books on the Beloved of God. This is such an important message for us all to understand and read 365 meditations on it helps to solidify it in one's heart. Nouwen concludes with a prayer for most months, which I found particularly useful.
   Wisdom at a Higher Level
There were always words of wisdom from the Bible and other spiritual sources, but fell short of what my heart asked for. My feeling is that part of the problem is that Christ spoke to people living 2,000 years ago. What was recorded is that Christ taught Wisdom for any age, but as we grew in intelligence, in purpose and in consciousness we began to need additional pointers to reach higher levels.
   Nouwen's writing is a balm for the soul, especially ...
The short readings take less than five minutes, but are so worth it.
   This book allows me to begin the day knowing that God's love is real and present in this moment.
Having struggled with an unrelenting inner critic for most of my life, I find that this book speaks with great clarity and insight of my value to my creator, not for what I am, but for who I am. Herri Nouwen captures the daily message of the gospel and dispenses it in a daily format that speaks to my soul and allows me to carry this blessing into my day and all relationships in my life.
   Five Stars
I love Henri Nouwen's books! This is a daily book for great reflections and meditation. Totally worth it!
