Learn to apply six principles that will help bring your prodigal back to God.

Overview

The word prodigal means "wasted." Like the younger son in Jesus' parable, many of our sons and daughters are wasting their lives. We often think of the defiant ones as prodigals, but there are other types that break our hearts: embarrassing, intellectual, lukewarm, and religious prodigals. Learn to apply six principles that will help bring your prodigal back to God. Hundreds of times each year, older adults come to me and tell heartbreaking stories about their grown children who have turned their backs on God, and sometimes, on these parents. At the end of these stories, most of the parents ask the poignant question, "What did I do wrong?" That question haunts them, but it is a very important question to ask. Some parents have, indeed, contributed to the waywardness of their children, but many prodigals, like the son in Jesus' parable in Luke 15, have chosen to walk away from loving, supportive parents. In these pages, we will examine six principles to help bring your son, your daughter, or your grandchild back to God. I trust God will encourage you deeply as your read this book.
