Rembrandt's painting shown on the cover of this book is so stunningly beautiful and  spiritually vivid,  I had to learn more about it. I've never read anything by Nouwen before, but I was curious to understand how this painting became the impetus for a spiritual awakening in him. In this little book, I gained insights into Rembrandt the man as well as the artistic methods he used to convey his interpretation of the parable of the prodigal son. All of this is explored in the context of a surprisingly candid revelation of Nouwen's personal struggles. Whether you agree with Nouwen's personal interpretation of the painting, this is a fascinating examination of the art and the concepts of regret and forgiveness.
