With over a million copies sold, this classic work is essential reading for all who ask, “Where has my struggle led me?” A chance encounter with a reproduction of Rembrandt’s The Return of the Prodigal Son catapulted Henri Nouwen on an unforgettable 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. As Nouwen reflects on Rembrandt’s painting in light of his own life journey, he evokes a powerful drama of the classic parable in a rich, captivating way that is sure to reverberate in the hearts of readers. Nouwen probes the several movements of the parable: the younger son’s return, the father’s restoration of sonship, the elder son’s resentfulness, and the father’s compassion. The themes of homecoming, affirmation, and reconciliation will be newly discovered by all who have known loneliness, dejection, jealousy, or anger. The challenge to love as God loves, and to be loved as God’s beloved, will be seen as the ultimate revelation of the parable known to Christians throughout time, and is here represented with a vigor and power fresh for our times.

This whole work is dominated by the idea of the victory of love, goodness and charity. The event is treated as the highest act of human wisdom and spiritual nobility, and it takes place in absolute silence and stillness. The drama and depth of feeling are expressed in the figures of both father and son, with all the emotional precision with which Rembrandt was endowed. This parable in Rembrandt's treatment is addressed to the heart of everyone.

The Return of the Prodigal Son: A Story of Homecoming is Henri Nouwen's most popular book, selling seven million copies since its publication in 1992. What accounts for its ongoing popularity as a spiritual classic? Drawing from extensive research in Nouwen's archives, author and Chief Archivist for the Henri Nouwen Legacy Trust, Gabrielle Earnshaw, provides a detailed account of how the book came to be written, shedding light on Nouwen's writing process and aspects of his life experience that influenced his insights and ideas. Earnshaw examines Nouwen's intellectual formation as well as the impact of his family and friends on the shape of the book. Letters, many published here for the first time, give us a privileged look at Henri's world during the nine years he took to complete the book. Earnshaw considers how it compares to other books published at the same time to place the work and its author in a historical, cultural and religious/spiritual context. Finally, she explores how Nouwen himself was changed by the book and why twenty-three later it continues to touch the hearts and minds of 21st century readers.

Stories hold answers and teachings, be it a parable or a fairy story, and The Prodigal Son is just one of many. What does it teach? The story of humanity and its climb from savagery to the stars is a map that shows a way back once we have learned the lesson. The prodigal had to leave in order to find the way back. It's uncomfortable, humiliating, and full of self-doubt but it's there.Evolution is a school of hard knocks and every life form goes through it. Every living creature existing in this time, this NOW, has got to this point by evolving. By growing in wisdom, adapting to different climates, ways of living, and coping with crises of every kind. Life itself is a prodigal... learning what forms, foods, habitats, and climates can be used, developed, grown and shared. Compare how early humanity emerging from the disappearing Ice Age, with an ordinary everyday human being in the twenty first century. YET! We are still, in one sense of the word... on the way HOME. We have a long way to go yet, before we reach the peak of what we CAN achieve. But at least the story of the Prodigal offers hope, an incentive to keep trying, keep learning, keep going forward and upward.
