Another great book that encourages parents of prodigal's that there is hope...prayer is the best weapon of defense against the attacker Satan who wants to win and destroy our daughter's life...Scripture and prayers very helpful and encouraging..To all parents who long for peace and hope for their situation of a child gone astray this is a great read
Hope For A Homecoming: Entrusting Your Prodigal to a Soverign God Jul 10, 2008
This book was the most helpful and comforting book I have ever read. Having a prodigal child is almost like the death of a child. The hurt is almost unbearable. After reading the book I found that God wants to comfort and encourage us in every situation concerning our children. Both of the authors have experienced prodigal children, so they can relate. There are other books on the subject, but THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU if you want a Christian perspective on how to live with your situation.
Still hoping May 27, 2008
Great book of comfort and hope. We are still praying and hoping. God isn't finished with our prodigal yet and we are starting to see progress. The book is well-written and it's one we'll keep.
Excellent resource Nov 5, 2007
Our Pastor to Families with Adolescents has used this book several times when teaching our Hope of a Homecoming class, where parents with prodigals can meet with other parents of prodigals for support, encouragement, and to gain a biblical perspective on the situation. The pastor also gives this book away to parents that he counsels who are in this situation. The authors have personal experience with prodigals, so they're not just writing "as if," they are writing having been through the difficulties and challenges that parents with prodigals face.
This book hit home Feb 10, 2007
SO many things in this book seemed to be what I and my Prodigal are going through. As always it's the outcome we don't know, but it's the peace you can have while you're in it.
