Many families today experience the profound guilt and shame filled pain
of seeing a child walk away from their faith and values. Churches and parents feel
powerless to change the relationship and engage the prodigal in positive ways. Carol
Barnier has the insight to help. She left the faith of her pastor father, became
an active atheist, debated Christians, and explored a variety of worldviews before
she found the truth in a relationship with Jesus.
But far more than her personal
story, Engaging Today's Prodigal equips readers with a better understanding
of a prodigal's motivation, useful responses that won't prevent reconciliation,
clear boundaries to protect themselves and other children, actions to take when
you know you have contributed to the problem, and the value of realistic expectations.
With effective wit and humor, Carol provides material relevant for churches, parents
and even the prodigals themselves.
Can your family or church interact with
a prodigal in ways that build a relationship bridge that can provide a way back
home when they are ready? Let Engaging Today's Prodigal equip you with
clear, specific actions that can overcome the shame, hurt, and loss to bring real
hope for the future.
