Publisher's Description

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.

Author Bio

CAROL BARNIER is a humorist and speaker, frequent radio guest and author, Pastor's kid, Christian. . .and former atheist. These days she admits she takes her God, her faith and her theology very seriously, but herself. . .not so much. To every task she brings along her slightly irreverent humor, whether tackling the issues of being very ADHD, the discomfort at being asked to be the older woman in a Titus program (after all, Titus rhymes with phlebitis--proceed with caution), or how to love today's "woman at the well." But in her latest project--bringing tools and hope to the parents of prodigals, Carol rolls up her sleeves and shares ideas and stories from the heart and from her own journey. In every talk, every article, every interview and every book, it is her objective to not only inspire people, but to give them something they can take home and use immediately. She lives in Connecticut with her husband of 25 years and her three kids.

    We loved this book! It affirmed things that God has been teaching us through the years, we have dealt with our "prodigal" and the book also gave us new insight and peace of mind for the future. It is not only important for parents of prodigals, but also for family and church members to read. We all would be able to better understand and minister to others that have prodigals or to the prodigals themselves.

    Great book for ANYONE that is dealing with a "prodigal". Its nice seeing things from an actual prodigal's viewpoint, what can work, what doesn't and so on. This also isn't just for parents whose children have completely turned their backs on God, it's for sisters, brothers or friends of those that are struggling with their faith and are headed down roads which don't align with Christian values. I found it to be a great help, don't be afraid to pick up this book!

    This is an excellent book for any Christian struggling with the issues it covers. We found it very helpful in a very unique situation that we have been struggling with, namely a same-sex marriage issue in our family.

    This book was highly recommended to us by a very wise counselor at Focus on the Family.

    If you're like me, reading everything you can get your hands on, helps. But finding someone with parenting prodigal experience who I could actually talk to really helped. christianhelphotline.com Wow, what a blessing! I had no idea a service like that existed, just found it by googling. Thought I would pass it on. I recommended this book to a friend of mind who also has a prodigal daughter. She was glad for the comfort she received from the hotline and the book.

    Refreshing&new material with current & up-to-date insight into living with a prodigal in our lives! In following the suggestions in this book, I believe we are practicing God's perspective, not mans, so eventually it will become a win-win situation if we "don't lose heart",even though it may take years for our breakthrough.
