Overview

Ruth Bell Graham knows about prodigals - two of her five children were spiritual wanderers. From the pain she experienced as she prayed, watched, and waited for them to return to "the fold" comes Prodigals and Those Who Love Them.. "Throughout the writing of this book, Mrs. Graham kept in mind both the hurt and disappointment the one who wanders feels and the confusion and fear of the one who waits. To capture both sides, she recounts stories about five prodigals, interfacing them with the stories of those who loved them. Mrs. Graham also includes her own poems and diary entries written during the prodigal years of her two sons, as well as hymns and Bible verses that brought her solace.. "Anyone who knows a prodigal or has a prodigal will benefit from this sensitive, encouraging book. It is not a "how to" book that gives ways to win back a prodigal. Instead, it is a collection of readings one woman turned to for comfort when her children wandered from God.
