The Return of the Prodigal Son:

A Story of Homecoming is a spiritual

adventure story. A chance encounter with a poster depicting a detail
of Rembrandt's The Return of the Prodigal Son set in motion a chain
of events that enabled Nouwen to redefine and claim his vocation late
in his life. In this book, which interweaves elements of art history,
memoir, Midrash, and self-help, Nouwen brings the parable to life
with empathic analyses of each character. Nouwen's absorption in the
story (and the painting) is so complete that the father's challenge
to love the son, and the son's challenge to receive that love, become
Nouwen's own. And Nouwen's writing is so clear and his tone is so
appealingly frank and humble that readers--no matter how far from
home--will find hope for themselves in the prodigal peace Nouwen
ultimately achieves.
