I bought this book as a response to a very real need being experienced in our circle of friends. How do you walk alongside someone who is hurting for their rebellious child? How do we keep 'the light on' for those who may not know we will welcome them home? Rob Parsons speaks from the heart, with humility and grace. He encourages and admonishes, and challenges us not to make prodigals of those who need to experience the love of the Father.

Most of us know a family that is struggling with a prodigal child seeking to draw their hearts back to Jesus. In Bringing Home the Prodigals author Rob Parsons addresses the heart of the issue of prodigal children. Parsons focuses on what we can now do - as parents of these prodigals - to gently guide them home to us, and more importantly, to God.Engagingly written, this short book of 119 pages can be read in a day, but it will bear re-reading at a slower, more devotional pace to reap the riches to be found here. Though I am not the parent of a prodigal, Parsons ponderings on how we deal with prodigals as individuals, and as a church led me to examine my own spiritual life and dealings with others. I thank Parsons for drawing us back to the heart of God for the lost as demonstrated in the parable of the prodigal son.I would have enjoyed seeing some more scripture directly in the text there seemed to be relatively little scripture presented. The main scripture that the book is based on, the parable of the prodigal son is not once included in the text of the book, which did seem a bit odd. the scripture presented is from the NIV, The Message (which is not properly scripture, but rather a paraphrase), and The Amplified Bible. For those who prefer the KJV, you will want to read with your Bible at hand.Parsons writing voice is warm and encouraging; his years of walking with and teaching the relations of prodigals shine through in this book through the prayers, reflections and testimonies presented. I am thankful to have this book available to lend to the families I know who are dealing with this issue, to let them know that there is hope if we lay our prodigals at the feet of Jesus. Bringing Home the Prodigals encourages us to love, to pray, to stay open, to always be watching and to always keep a light on.

"Bringing Home The Prodigals" by Rob Parsons is an incredible book that will change everything about how you deal with your brothers and sisters in Christ! Written based on the parable of the prodigal son in Luke 15, Parsons shares the lessons he's learned not only about how to draw these wayward Christians back into the fold of the church, but how the church can avoid creating them in the first place! My eyes were opened to the cultural differences in Christians, and how those differences can become stumbling blocks of judgment against each other. Love is the key to a successful and fulfilling Christian life. The Bible says it, and Rob Parsons reminds us of this several times without pulling any punches! He says, "When the Father's house is filled with the Father's love, the prodigals will come home." I believe that this is the core message of this powerful and convicting book! Now we just need to put it into practice.
