About this audiobook

"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..."

    "Making All Things New" is a short book that looks at reconciling our crazy busy lives with putting God's Kingdom first. Nouwen discusses the paradox that our lives are somehow both overly filled and yet are ultimately unfulfilled. Like most of his work that I have read, this book forced me to think about how I live my life. At the same time, Nouwen's life was so far from mine that I find it hard to directly apply what he writes. Despite that, his honesty makes what he writes very approachable. He does not claim to have simple answers or even ones that he is successful at fully implementing. This book, like "Gracias," is one I expect I will read periodically in the hopes that his words better sink in each time and help me to live my life more in keeping with how God would want me to. I think this book is worth reading for most 21st Century Christians looking to find balance in their lives.

    On the spiritual life in Christ, it doesn't get any better than this.

    A short book that touches on finding a way to live a spiritual life in the midst of our "worried-filled world".

    This book is beautiful and challenging. This recording that Scribd offers is missing almost all of chapter 2.

    This is a thought provoking little book, and I liked it. It is missing some material around chapter 3, but I don’t know how much.
