Bringing Home the Prodigals by Rob Parsons

Rob Parsons, Bringing Home the Prodigals, Hodder & Stoughton, London 2003 £6.99

An international speaker with many years of pastoral experience, Rob Parsons writes a book full of simple wisdom and compassion in the easiest and most accessible of styles. Steeped in the evangelical tradition of his background, he looks at the Biblical story of the prodigal's return and reflects on how Christians might put it into practice when faced with their own prodigal children, or those whose hearts have been broken by them.

What comes across principally in this book is sanity, loving-kindness and support for dealing with the pain of broken relationships with humility, patience and hope. The book is divided into story, prayer and reflection, and would work well as a supportive text for churches, prayer and support groups or those working among the marginalized who want to engage with God's invitation to forgiveness and new life.
