Publishers Description

A painfully honest story of human weakness and God's unending forgiveness.

Thirteen years ago, amidst scandal, sin, and shattered lives, Michael English fell from the pinnacle of the Christian music world. In 1994, newspapers around the world blared the headline, "Gospel Singer Named Artist of the Year Turns in His Awards After Confirming He Had an Affair with a Fellow Married Singer." From 1994 to 2002 Michael English's life went from bad to worse. Public shame, divorce, broken relationships, drug addiction, even homelessness. But in 2002, God reached out and rescued Michael from himself. Today Michael is whole again, and in this book he tells his story of redemption.

Reviews - What do customers think about Prodigal Comes Home?

Best in the world  Sep 28, 2008
This is the most awesome truthful book that you can read. Michael doesn't mind telling his pain, heartaches,divorce and failure because he knows that we serve a mighty GOD and he would one day be back in the spot light again. This is one man that I would truly love to meet because he has been through problems that alot of us have been through ourselves. It's ashame that just because he's in the spot light his problems have to be exposed. But this is OK with me because I know that he is an awesome person. Keep doing what you're doiong Michael and I wish the the very best out of life and I know that GOD will continue to bless you in many ways. I am grateful for your true christian friends that stood beside you during your ordeal. You will always be the best in my eyes....

An honest behind-the-scenes story  Aug 16, 2008
Michael's "fall" from Christian music in 1994 was a big thing. I still remember walking into a Christian bookstore the day after and finding his CDs marked at a heavy discount and the store owner saying they'd be pulled by the end of the week (I bought a copy immediately). A lot of things have been said about Michael's failure at that point with the affair, but this book brings to light his and Marabeth's attempt to face up honestly for what they'd done. Truthfully, Marabeth could have kept her mouth shut and let her husband think the child was his and nothing more would have ever been known about it, but they didn't. It hurt, but they were honest.

The story gets tragic from there with Michael relapsing time and again into drug addiction. To be honest, I was a little unhappy to learn his two shows on a Christian television network were done while he was high as a kite (did no one in production notice anything?) and his records released then seem a little false as well, but at least he was trying to get on the right track. Now it appears his life has finally settled back into the plan God has for him with a new wife and another baby. I'm glad to see him back.

I remember reading an article a couple of years after the incident and it showed pictures of him. I thought, "Man, he looks like he's put on a lot of weight!", and this book explains what was going on then. His personal struggles took their toll on his life. Michael is brutally honest in this book and holds nothing back. Every failure and shortcoming are brought to light, with no excuses. He was a man who made mistakes, and he isn't afraid to admit it.

During the weeks after Michael's admitted affair, another famous Christian artist (this one a woman) also admitted to having an affair on her husband, got a divorce, and stepped out of her ministry for years. The press never really touched this one, even though she'd won awards as well. It just shows how Michael was singled out by the press and raked over the coals, which didn't help his situation.

I read this in one day, and it held my attention throughout. It's a great read and an honest look at the struggles the celebrities we dub "super Christians" go through behind the scenes.
Awesome book!  Aug 15, 2008
This book was awesome! Michael tells about the amazing grace of god in his life. I truly believe he is redeemed. I have saw him in concert this year and just saw him on TBN yesterday (Aug. 14, 2008). I saw him pray and even cry while giving his testimony. I'm a huge Michael English fan, but have never seen him so sincere. I'm so proud of him that he is back to singing. He has such a great talent. His book gives you great detail of everything he went through. Very easy book to read in two days.
The Prodigal is blessed!  Aug 13, 2008
I have all Michael English music. It is refreshing to hear a story with such honesty. I could not put the book down. I am seeing him in concert this Friday just a couple weeks after I read the book. Can't wait.
