Will Your Prodigal Come Home? An Honest Discussion of Struggle & Hope

Will Your Prodigal Come Home? An Honest Discussion of Struggle & Hope. That is the captivating title of the latest book by British author Jeff Lucas. Lucas is seeking to help facilitate a movement of “Prodigal Friendly Churches” in Britain and in the U.S.

The title sold me on this book. Almost every Christian knows a prodigal. There may be one in your family or in your circle of friends. We all want them to come home. The question is will they make their way home and when and how?

Lucas helps us to understand what “coming home” means for most profligate types who have been caught up in a world alien to committed Christians. He also is most helpful in distinguishing between seekers who are looking for the Lord and yet do not live up to our standards and those who are running from God as prodigals.

For Christians struggling to deal with the pain of such lifestyles, this book is a gift from God.

A warning is in order for the reader. You will not agree with everything the author espouses, but you will be better informed and more comforted by his message or as Lucas describes it, his “movement.”
