Overview

Ruth Bell Graham knew about prodigals--two of her five children were spiritual wanderers. This is not a "how to" book that dispenses easy advice on 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. It shows how Graham's faith persevered and grew regardless of the outcome of her prodigals' stories.
Part One introduces readers to five prodigals who "returned to the father." Part Two offers comfort and encouragement through Scripture, poems, hymns, prayers, and more. Readers will be touched by the honest feelings of pain, frustration, and uncertainty Graham expresses so eloquently. And they will share in the lessons she learned about God's sovereignty and ultimate peace. Now beautifully repackaged, Prodigals and Those Who Love Them brings peace and hope to all parents of "wayward" children.

After 4 1/2 years of waiting on a prodigal, this is absolutely the dearest and most comforting book I have found--and the only one that I will read again. I could have read this short book in an hour, but Mrs. Graham packs a lot in a few words. excellent and profound

It has been several years since I waited for the return of a prodigal, but I remember this amazing book as being one of God' gracious provisions for me during that time.
