The Long Journey Home: Parables and Wisdom from the Little Prince

Robert R. Fuggi


The Little Prince is cloaked in imagery and concepts that are not apparent at first blush.
Originally written in French, Le Petit Prince was published in 1943 and has transcended time and place to become one of the all-time great literary works. Young readers have enjoyed the journeys and encounters of the title character-and the book has also captured the imagination of adults.
In The Long Journey Home, author and theologian Robert F. Fuggi uncloaks the many theological concepts that may be gleaned from The Little Prince.
He observes that in many ways, the story is similar to the parables that Jesus taught. In the parable of the lost coin, when a woman had ten silver coins and lost one, Jesus says, "Does she not light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it?"
In the parable of the treasure hidden in the field, a man finds treasure, but doesn't own the field so he hides it again, and then in his joy, he goes out and sells all he has to buy the field.
In the story of The Little Prince, if you look carefully for the hidden treasure, you will be rewarded.
