From the Author

From the Inside Flap

Inspired by Rembrandt's famous painting "The Return of the Prodigal Son, Henri Nouwen embarked on a long spiritual journey in search of the place within where God has chosen to dwell. He shared his deeply personal meditations in "The Return of the Prodigal Son, a spiritual classic that interweaves elements of art history, memoir, midrash, and self-help. It has sold more than 300,000 copies and its popularity continues to rise ten years after its original publication.
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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Home Tonight invites you into Nowen's thinking and life as he writes on the Prodigal Son. It allowed me to look at he biblical story of The Prodigal Son through a new lense as I became aware of how it applied to my life in a new way

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.

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.
