Editorial Reviews

From the Author

To learn more about the life and work of Henri J.M. Nouwen, please visit HenriNouwen.org .

From the Back Cover

Home Tonight follows the path of Henri Nouwen's spiritual homecoming.  More than three years prior to writing his great classic, The Return of the Prodigal Son, Nouwen suffered a personal breakdown followed by a time of healing solitude when he encountered Rembrandt's famous painting.  Within his solitude he reflected on and identified with the parable's characters and experienced profound and inspiring life lessons.

This captivating book was created from never-before-published materials that formed the basis of the small workshop inspired by Nouwen's intimate encounter with Rembrandt's painting.  Readers are led to welcome their unique Belovedness through practices of "spiritual listening," journaling, and communing with God, thus connecting personally with the unique, unconditional love of the One who created them.  Home Tonight
is a practical guide for the inner journey home.

More About the Author

Henri Nouwen was born in Holland in 1932 and ordained a Catholic priest in 1957. He obtained his doctorandus in psychology from Nijmegen University in The Netherlands and taught at Notre Dame, Yale, and Harvard. He experienced the monastic life with Trappist monks at the Abbey of the Genesee, lived among the poor in Latin America with the Maryknoll missioners, and was interested and active in numerous causes related to social justice. After a lifetime of seeking, Henri Nouwen finally found his home in Canada, as pastor of L'Arche Daybreak - where people with intellectual disabilities and their caregivers live together in community.

Henri Nouwen wrote over 40 books on spirituality and the spiritual life that have sold millions of copies and been translated into dozens of languages. His vision of spirituality was broad and inclusive, and his compassion embraced all of humankind.

He died in 1996. His work and his spirit live on.

Henri Nouwen pronounced his name "Henry Now-en." For more information on his life and work, please visit www.henrinouwen.org .

Ever since I read Henri Nouwen's book about the Parable of the Prodigal son, I've wanted to know more about Henri. This book takes you into his life and you learn about the struggles he went through.

HOME TONIGHT is a book to provoke thought and self examination.
It deals with the issues of belonging, forgiveness and home in new ways that I hadn't considered before.It is a sequel to THE RETURN OF THE PRODIGAL.

Beautifully crafted from Nouwen's notes and workshops, this book touches the deepest longings and fears of those who feel alienated by life and circumstances.

One of the best of Nouwen's books!

I am half way through the book and it is wonderful. You have to look deep inside yourself and take the time to read and reflect. We are using it at our church bookclub and everyone is having a different experience. Some like to journal, some find it difficult. In any event, we are all enjoying the book and the Prodigal Son. It is amazing how many times you can read this passage and gain something new. I would suggest having a better picture of the Return of the Prodigal Son. It is very hard to see on the inside cover.

So wonderful and powerful and insightful! Absolutely love this book! Makes sense! I have read this book and find myself going back to it time and time again. Each time I read it I gain something and gain a sense of peace and joy. There is truth in the writing. I love all the quotes referenced. So much to think about ... So much to ponder ... I keep this book on my desk at work and often reach for it. If your soul is yearning for a greater message - pick this book up! Highly recommend.

Format: Paperback
Have you ever wished you could take a class or workshop with one of the great spiritual teachers and then lamented that they have all passed on?

Never mind that Henri Nouwen died in 1996. Thanks to the hard work of a small group of Nouwen enthusiasts, it's now possible to participate in one of his retreats. His conferences and workshops were never professionally recorded during his lifetime, but a dedicated group has drawn together the contents of a three-day workshop Nouwen gave at a L'Arche community.

Home Tonight focuses on a topic close to Nouwen's heart, the parable of the Prodigal Son. The chapters of this book proceed as expected. They open with an examination of a particular facet of the parable. From there you're led to prayerful review, journaling, communing and, finally an assigned spiritual practice. Approach this intentionally. Clear your weekend schedule, gather your materials, and be prepared for an immersion in the wisdom of Henri Nouwen. You won't regret it.

Second installment of the first book.
The initial offering is one of my favorites.
This one adds to it and continues Henri's journal of his very holy and searching path.
I am not into canonizing people, but Henri would probably get my vote.

I really have enjoyed this book so far. I have read Nouwen's book "The Return of the Prodigal Son". After reading a couple of chapters of "Home Tonight", it has made me look at the parables a little more different and look at my vocation in a different manner. Henri Nouwen's writings have been very inspirational to me and in my vocation.

I gave the book to someone to read before I had a chance to read it. She was very moved by it and told another person. The outcome, 15 of our Ladies of Charity bought it and 10 are coming every Monday for a book discussion. We have never done this before, but this book is very meaningful.
