An invitation to prayer and reflection on the parable of the prodigal son. Nouwen encourages the reader to move through the parable reflecting on the scripture and painting of the prodigal son and on our own journey as prodigal son, elder sibling and the forgiving parent. The themes of forgiveness, reconciliation and homecoming, are very relevant to many and the reader is encouraged at the end of each chapter to reflect, write and pray. It is Nouwen's honest sharing of his own experiences that are very inspiring and challenged me to be more honest in my journey of faith. This is both a challenging and an excellent guide for prayer and reflection.
