The Truth about Prodigals: Words of Counsel to Parents and Friends
This robustly biblical book addresses the matter of why children from Christian homes sometimes grow up without any serious regard for God and the things of God. Tracing several biblical characters and events, Will Simmons helpfully draws lines of application from them to life in our day, giving we and practical counsel to parents and loved ones of adult prodigal children.
Will Simmons has done a good job addressing such an important issue in the realm of biblical counseling. Here is a resource that counselors can use regularly as a tool in their ministries; I hope it receives a wide readership.
