Prior to writing his great classic, The Return of the Prodigal Son, Henri Nouwen suffered an enormous personal loss and breakdown that took him away from his home in the L'Arche Daybreak community for a period of seven months. His thoughts were intense, raw and deeply private, and ultimately revealed to him the passionate drama of parenthood, filial duty, rivalry, anger and unconditional love on display in Rembrandt's painting. On his return from solitude, Henri held small, private workshops on his revelations that were recorded in audio. The material of those extremely personal talks has now been formed into a unique work. Home Tonight brings to light Nouwen's lectures on the Prodigal Son in a powerful guide for spiritual reflection. Providing exercises, suggestions for times of solitude, questions for pondering, simple prayers, and aides for personal journaling, Home Tonight leads readers to commune with God through spiritual listening. A practical guide for the inner journey home, this important book will give those who adore Nouwen's works the chance to hear his voice anew on his most popular topic.

About the Author:

HENRI J. M. NOUWEN (1932-1996) was a Catholic priest who taught at several theological institutions and universities in the United States. He spent the final years of his life teaching and ministering to the mentally and physically disabled at L'Arche Daybreak community in Toronto, Canada.

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.
