From the Inside Flap
RETURNING: REFLECTIONS ON THE RETURN OF THE PRODIGAL SON grew out of a series of lectures Nouwen presented as he immersed himself further in the desire to understand and embrace the meaning of the father's challenge to love his son and the son's challenge to receive that love. In thoughtful, incisive analyses of each character, Nouwen brings the parable to life and brilliantly illuminates the nature of what it means to love and to be loved.
Elegantly packaged and affordably priced, RETURNING: REFLECTIONS ON THE RETURN OF THE PRODIGAL SON is the perfect holiday gift for readers familiar with Nouwen's writings (more than two million copies of his books are currently in print), as well as those discovering his ageless wisdom for the first time.

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!
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.
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.
