A New Year

December 31, 2022

Join us in exploring the wonderful book from Henri J.M. Nouwen, The Return of the Prodigal Son: A Story of Homecoming.

Available in several formats at, the description reads, "

In seizing the inspiration that came to him through Rembrandt's depiction of the powerful Gospel story "The Return of the Prodigal Son," Henri Nouwen probes several movements of the parable: the younger son's return, the father's restoration of sonship, the elder son's vengefulness, and the father's compassion. In his reflection on Rembrandt in light of his own life's journey, the author evokes a powerful drama of the parable in a rich, captivating way that is sure to reverberate in the hearts of readers.

We'll start our conversation and contemplation of this book on February 5th at 8:30 a.m. with an introduction to the book and the layout of our schedule. This should give everyone plenty of time to purchase a copy.

You can buy The Return of the Prodigal Son Anniversary Edition: A Special Two-in-One Volume, which includes Home Tonight, the book’s companion, and a prequel.

Hardcover, paperback, and standard Kindle editions are also available on
