Home Tonight

Home Tonight follows the path of Henri Nouwen’s spiritual homecoming. More than three years prior to writing his great classic, The Return of the Prodigal Son, Nouwen suffered a personal breakdown followed by a time of healing solitude when he encountered Rembrandt’s famous painting. Within his solitude he reflected on and identified with the parable’s characters and experienced profound and inspiring life lessons.

Return of the Prodigal Son

When Henri Nouwen stumbled across a poster of Rembrandt's Return of the Prodigal Son he began a spiritual journey that would help him understand the biblical parable as well as the story of his own life. Take this opportunity to join Henri as he leads the wayward prodigal and judgmental sibling who reside within each of us towards the open-handed, overwhelming compassion and eternal love of the Father. The Return of the Prodigal Son will transform your reading of the parable and the way you understand your life story.

Becoming Orthodox
A Journey to the Ancient Christian Faith
by Fr. Peter Gillquist

This is a book for those completely dissatisfied—those on their own search. And it’s a book for Orthodox Christians looking for renewal. It is also the story of every believer who is searching for the Church. Where Christ is Lord. Where holiness, human responsibility, and the Sovereignty of God are preached. Where fellowship is more than a covered-dish supper in the church basement. And where fads and fashion take a back seat to apostolic worship and doctrine. This is a book for Christians looking for ways to bring new life to their own churches.

Crazy John (currently out of stock)
By Dionysios Makris

His narration was about a fool for Christ, a man of our times, who lived in one of the many glass-faced, sentimentally unreachable, and alienated neighborhoods of Athens, a place where people’s doors were firmly closed for the neighbor, and everyday life was going by in a spirit of apathy, vanity, and thoughtlessness towards others, an actual depiction of the self-centered human passions that predominate in our present times.
