This powerful meditation illuminates the parable of the prodigal son found in Luke's Gospel. Nouwen discovers anew the reality that God's love is unconditional and shares his own spiritual journey with us. In this audiobook, Nouwen shares his own experience as the wayward son as well as the vengeful older brother and the compassionate father.

I learned of this book listening to a Tara Brach podcast "Love is always loving us." The book works for me.
I recognized what "leaving home" really is and have a deeper understanding of myself relating to the older brother; I'm angry & judgemental bc of my righteousness and so on...realized my secret deep yearning to belong.
