At one of the lowest points in his life, Henri Nouwen gave a series of lectures on the importance of Following Jesus in an age of anxiety. Drawing on those talks, this practical book offers warm, discerning, practicable habits to help readers navigate the narrow, sometimes arduous, but ultimately fulfilling road of conviction and faith.

Nouwen's lectures explain why, with so many choices available to twenty-first-century seekers, the greatest reward for those looking for spiritual direction is rediscovering Jesus’ teaching on love.

Following Jesus includes a forward by bestselling authors Richard Rohr.
