Discernment: Reading the Signs of Daily Life features the wisdom that spiritual leader and counselor Henri J. M. Nouwen brought to the essential question asked by every Christian and seeker: What should I do with my life?

Nouwen emphasizes listening to the Word of God-in our hearts in the Bible in the community of faith and in the voice of the poor as a way to discern God's plan.

Although the late Henri J. M. Nouwen counseled many people during his lifetime his principles of discernment were never collected into a single volume. Now in association with the Nouwen Legacy Trust Michael Christensen-one of Nouwen's longtime students-and Rebecca Laird have taken his coursework journals and unpublished writings to create this and other books in the series exploring God's will for your life.
