Home Tonight follows the path of Henri Nouwen's spiritual homecoming. More than three years prior to writing his great classic, The Return of the Prodigal Son, Nouwen suffered a personal breakdown followed by a time of healing solitude when he encountered Rembrandt's famous painting. Within his solitude he reflected on and identified with the parable’s characters and experienced profound and inspiring life lessons.
- Listeners will be inspired!
Narrator Arthur Morey interprets the author’s unique identification with the parable of the Prodigal Son in Luke. Morey captures the essence of Nouwen's personal breakdown and spiritual rebirth three years later, in particular the compelling insights he gained from affirming that God loves his earthly children in the same way He loves Jesus. Morey powerfully delivers Nouwen's discussion of Rembrandt's famous 1669 painting THE RETURN OF THE PRODIGAL SON. Listeners will be inspired by Nouwen's observations on the benefits of "spiritual listening" and his encouragement to journal and personally commune with God.
