I just finished The Return of the Prodigal Son by Henri Nouwen. It all starts with a glance at the painting of the same name done by Rembrandt and how it suddenly pierces his awareness, settles with a clonk into his consciousness and rattles around in there for a long, long time. I like this priest and philosopher who puzzles and puzzles about the wisdom to be found in stories of the scripture and the the struggle to absorb the lessons in spite of human frailty (his own and ours). I think I should like to read more of his writings.
