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. --Michael Joseph Gross
