Publisher's Description

"During the past few years, various friends have asked me, 'What do you mean when you speak about the spiritual life?' Every time this question has come up, I have wished I had a small and simple book which could offer the beginning of a response. I have felt that there was a place for a text that could be read within a few hours and could not only explain what the spiritual life is but also create a desire to live it. This feeling caused me to write Making All Things New..."

"The beginning of the spiritual life is often difficult not only because the powers which cause us to worry are so strong but also because the presence of God's Spirit seems barely noticeable. If, however, we are willing to live a life of prayer and practice the disciplines of solitude and community, a new hunger will make itself known. This new hunger is the first sign of God's presence. When we remain attentive to this divine presence, we will be led always deeper into the kingdom. There, to our joyful surprise, we will discover that the power of our worries is weakening and all things are being made new."
- -from Making All Things New

Editorial Reviews

“A fine introduction to the spiritual life.”
“In this quietly written call to follow the way of Christian spirituality, Nouwen emphasizes the necessity for a personal program of contemplative solitude and for the individual’s involvement in a community of like-seeking Christians.”
“Nouwen skillfully blends his knowledge of psychological growth with the great Christian traditions of spiritual development.”
“[Henri Nouwen] offers faith in plain speech, solid nourishment for the soul.”
“An invitation to the peace of mind and all-embracing love that is called the Holy Spirit.”
“In this little book, Nouwen urges us the one thing necessary: a total, fearless listening to the Father.”
“It so clearly and beautifully lets us know where, and when, and what kind of event is the spiritual life.”
“An instructive and gentle book. Henri Nouwen does more than tell us that solitude and community are essential for the spiritual life. His words impart a spirit that will better enable his readers to provide themselves with these seemingly contradictory necessities.”
