Before he wrote his classic The Return of the Prodigal Son Henri Nouwen suffered a personal breakdown which was followed by a time spent healing in solitude when he spent time with Rembrandt's "Prodigal Son" painting. Home Tonight is created from materials of Nouwen's that had never been published before and that was used in a small workshop inspired by and based on the encounter of Nouwen with the painting. The book has chapters that connect Nouwen's journey with the journey of the prodigal son and encourage the reader to become involved with that journey also through listening, journaling and communing with God. Each chapter presents a reading then follows with suggested exercises involving inner listening, journaling based on the listening and then communing with God about the insights gained through the listening and journaling all of which help the reader gain insight into their own personal inner journey toward God. A practice is then suggested for the reader to engage in that reinforces what occurred through the listening, journaling and communing. Quotes from other writes are sprinkled throughout the book which add additional encouragement and insights.
