The Inner Voice: A journey through anguish to freedom by Henry J. M. Nouwen

This intensely personal journal was written by a Catholic priest during the most difficult period of his life, following the breakdown of a close relationship. During that time, he lost his self-esteem, his energy to live and work, his sense of being loved, even his hope in God. He experienced excruciating anguish and despair but he was still able to keep a journal in which he wrote each day a spiritual imperative to himself.

This book may offer new courage, hope and even new life to the countless men and women who suffer the loss of a loved one or the pain of a broken relationship
