    I highly recommend this book even if you feel you don't know a prodigal

    This was a very eye opening book. I bought it with one person in mind that I thought was a prodigal. By the end of the book, it changed my view of who are the real prodigals.

    This is for anyone wanting to know how to love others as Jesus does.

    A book every Christian needs to read...

    I am blown away by the heart of this book and Rob Parsons for the lost, even the lost who never left home. This book is timely and relevant to where the church is right now. <BR/><BR/>Rob mentions how we are leading people to Jesus and they are coming in the front door even as prodigals are leaving out the back door because of the older brother's critical spirit. <BR/><BR/>On page 105 he says... If your prodigals do come home, pray with all your hearts that they meet the father first and not the elder brother. Oh that elder brother! The one who did his sinning without ever leaving. The one who needed to "come home" every bit as much as his brother but who could never grasp what the heart of real love is - both to give and to receive it. For a non-fiction book, it is a very easy read but it will blow your mind!
