A spiritual master shows us how to live a life of spiritual assurance in the midst of difficult life situations. This book was born in response to personal requests asked many times by a variety of people--many of whom are far removed from any traditional religious base--for Nouwen to describe the way to live a spiritual life in a material world. Nouwen's answer is both a challenge and a promise that life works, has deep meaning, and is worth all the pain and struggle.

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
