Life of the Beloved
This spiritual classic began as a simple request from one friend to another. Fred Bratman, a secular journalist and writer, asked friend and renowned author Henri Nouwen to write a book explaining the spiritual life in terms that he and his friends could understand, avoiding theology and technical language. Nouwen responded with "Life of the Beloved, " which shows that all people, believers and nonbelievers, are beloved by God unconditionally. Paperback, 156 pages.
