Publishers Description Are you as close to God as you would like to be? Few Christians would claim to have fallen into overt sin, but many of us have allowed busyness, materialism, and the pursuit of pleasure to erode our spiritual lives. If you have been sidetracked from your journey with God, there is a pathway that leads home. "Coming Home" offers step-by-step guidance and encouragement to lead you back to your waiting Father. "Spiritual rain for your heart's desert. Robert Jeffress is a world-class storyteller. Offers an easy to read, conscience-pricking pathway back to the heavenly Father who loves us." --Bobb Biehl, President, Masterplanning Group International "For those who have strayed... "Coming Home" is worthy of your reading." --Adrian Rogers, Host, "Love Worth Finding" "Robert Jeffress is right: living a God-honoring life is 'no game for sissies.' Both the culture in which we live and our own natural bent toward sin pull us away from the God we mean to follow. "Coming Home" points wandering believers back to a Father who not only waits, but welcomes us home again with open arms." --Ed Young, Pastor, Second Baptist Church, Houston

Excellent read Jul 11, 2005
I couldn't put this book down. The character development is wonderful. With the wide cast of characters there is someone here to appeal to almost everyone's interests and own personal reference. A fantastic book!
A charming and heartfelt story of two friends. Jun 13, 1999
This book was so touching that I cried several times while reading it. I have always enjoyed reading a romance book that deals with two friends who fall in love unexpectedly. She has a great talent for writing; I loved everything about it! And the title is fitting. It gives one a sense of Coming Home. Thank you Barbara Hicks!
For those who want to come home to their loving father Aug 2, 1998
Coming home explains how and why we move away from God, the consequences,and more importantly, how , to return to the Father who loves you. "All Christians, at some point in their lives, will wander away from God," according to Robert Jeffress, in part because of our sinful nature, and in part because of Satan's plan. However, he identifies three reasons why believers leave for the far country : money, pleasure and ambition.
Coming Home is based on the story of the Prodigal Son in the Gospel of Luke, divided into three parts: the departure, life in the far country, and the return. Jeffress says, "The movement away from God occurs step by step, choice by choice, until one day we awaken in a distant country, far removed from the God we once knew."
The author indicates that life away from God is not all pain and pleasure, and it can last a long time. He warns against the attitude that one can return at anytime they wish, advising that the ability to! repent is a gift from God.
This beautifully written book is for those who are ready and willing to come home to the Father who loves them. Its for every believer who longs for an intimate relationship with their heavenly Father. It shows how to find the way back through crisis, repentance, forgiveness, and perseverance, and the study guide in the back of the book will help readers to take the necessary steps.
