The Prodigal Road is the personal story of the rescue of an exuberant young man who became entrapped in the deceitful clutches of evil. Dr. Richard Miller—the author and subject of the book—interweaves the antics, joy, and pain of a preacher's kid exploring the hills of Appalachia and imagining the thrill of exploring faraway places.
However, due to a poor relationship with his father and his own stubborn will, he drifted into a life of rebellion punctuated by a near fatal bout with alcohol poisoning. While pursuing a successful military and corporate career, an invisible war raged in the background of his life, tormenting him with fear of punishment from an angry God for not becoming a preacher. At age 35, Richard found himself in Siam where the Shepherd was waiting, not to punish him, but to forgive him and saturate him with the exhilarating joy of unequivocal love! From this beginning, he learned to ingest God's word which released its dynamic power in his life as the permanent remedy for fear, anxiety, and stress. This book will help you acquire that same peace.
Take the journey with Richard as he moves from the dark swamp of rebellion—where he was hammered by the king of the swamp—and climbs the mountain of redemption where he is captured in the majestic light of the Redeemer. The hero of the story is the Redeemer who forgives and then provides dynamic lessons of God's words that will permeate one's heart, soul, and mind to create congruence among all aspects of life.
