A chance encounter with a reproduction of Rembrandt's The Return of the Prodigal Son began Henri Nouwen on a long spiritual adventure. Here he shares the deeply personal and resonant meditation that led him to discover the place within where God has chosen to dwell. Through the painting, he probes several movements of the parable: the younger son's return, the father's restoration of sonship, the elder son's vengefulness and the father's compassion. In his reflections, the themes of homecoming, affirmation and reconciliation will be newly discovered by all who have know loneliness, dejection, jealousy or anger. The challenge to love as the father and be loved as the son will be seen as the ultimate revelation of the parable know to Christians throughout the world and through all time. 152 pp.
