Book Notes - Return of the Prodigal Son by Henri Nouwen

Henri Nouwen shares his journey of his spirituality as it relates to experiencing Rembrandt's Return of the Prodigal Son. The story opens up the possibility of really living into one Gospel story. His personal sharing of the depth of message and how it transformed him, invites us to see God in a warm, loving, accepting way. It also allows us to move from the older brother and younger son to being called to be like the father.
I would recommend this book to anyone who may be compelled to ease into the bible, particularly the Gospels to experience them in lieu of reading them. This is also a great reference for anyone that may need to become more familiar with an accepting, loving, forgiving God.
