The Prodigal: A book review

Rarely do I say a book is perfect but this book I just finished is perfect.  It was written by Brennan Manning, author of 'The Ragamuffin Gospel.'
The Ragamuffin Gospel is a Christian classic book on God's grace for screw-ups.  I highly recommend that book.
The Prodigal is Brennan Manning's final book.  He passed away before it's publication.
The Prodigal is a fictional account of a Pastoral Superstar who had a moral failure and his steps of redemption back to God and His church.  This book really is a retelling of the story of the Prodigal son.  It is very well written and it brings tears to your eyes as you root for God as God extends His grace to a man who doesn't deserve it (do any of us?).
I highly recommend this book to anyone who needs some encouragement, but I do recommend reading Manning's classic book The Ragamuffin Gospel also.  I give this book 10 stars out of 5.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review from
