Very inspirational and insightful for Christian readers. It clarified some points for me from 'The Way of the Heart.' At the end of his book Nouwen states that his friend Fred told him this book was not so different from his others, that Nouwen didn't realize how secular he and his friends were. I would suggest Fred and friends read Lee Strobel's books. Strobel was an atheist who wrote 'The Case for Faith', 'The Case for a Creator', etc.

Amazing work. Encapsulates a basic articulation of practical Christian theology. While I believe that this is more an invitation into a journey than a complete dissertation on Christian theology, I believe that this is exactly Nouwen's intention. Great read, awesome invitation into what it means to be the beloved of God.

This is a very slim easy to read book that has had a profound impact on my spiritual life and in the life of everyone that I know who has read it. Henri Nouwen unpacks the Parable of the Prodigal Son in a fresh way showing how the Images of the Father and the two Sons reflect different aspects of our spiritual lives. He has a gift for communicating Divine Truths in basic language that speaks directly into the heart.
