Product Description

With a forward from New York Times bestselling author, James Martin, SJ, comes a special two-in-one anniversary gift edition of Henri Nouwen's spiritual classic, The Return of the Prodigal Son and its companion and prequel, Home Tonight!

Reflecting on his chance encounter with a reproduction of Rembrandt's powerful masterpiece, Nouwen began a spiritual journey that would help him understand the biblical parable as well as the story of his own life. Join Nouwen as he leads the wayward prodigal and judgmental sibling who resides within each of us towards the open-handed, overwhelming compassion and eternal love of the Father. Nowen's examination and exploration of the themes of homecoming, affirmation, and reconciliation will evoke a powerful drama of the parable in a rich, captivating way that is sure to reverberate within the hearts of seekers from all walks of life. For anyone who has known loneliness, dejection, jealousy, or anger, this deeply personal and resonant meditation will reveal the love of a merciful Father and the place within where God has chosen to dwell.

Coupled with the lectures that inspired the book and originally collected in Home Tonight, this special 2-in-1 hardcover gift edition will provide inspiration and guidance for all those who have the courage to embark with Nouwen on a journey through its pages, as well as through their own story.
