Further Reflections on the Parable of the Prodigal Son
Henri J. M. Nouwen
Paperback |160 pp |210 x 148 mm
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 LArche 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 Rembrandts 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 Nouwens 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 Nouwens works the chance to hear his voice anew on his most popular topic.
