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.
