Description: The Return of the Prodigal Son is Henri Nouwen's most popular book, selling over one million copies since its publication in 1992. What accounts for its ongoing popularity as a spiritual classic? Drawing from extensive research in Nouwen's archives, Gabrielle Earnshaw, provides a detailed account of how the book came to be written, Nouwen's writing process and aspects of his life experience that influenced his insights and ideas.

Letters, many published here for the first time, give us a privileged look at Nouwen's world during the nine years he took to complete the book.

Earnshaw explores how Nouwen himself was changed by the book and why twenty-three years later it continues to touch the hearts and minds of 21st century readers.
