Product Description

Eleven years ago, amidst scandal, sin, and shattered lives, Michael English fell from the pinnacle of the Christian music world. Newspapers around the world blared the headline, "Gospel Singer Named Artist of the Year Turns in His Awards After Confirming He Had an Affair with a Fellow Married Singer." From 1994 to 2002 Michael English's life went from bad to worse--public shame, divorce, broken relationships, drug addiction, even homelessness. But in 2002, God reached out and rescued Michael from himself. Today Michael is whole again and for the first time he tells his story of redemption. 240 pages, hardcover from Nelson.

Publisher's Description

A painfully honest story of human weakness and God's unending forgiveness.

Thirteen years ago, amidst scandal, sin, and shattered lives, Michael English fell from the pinnacle of the Christian music world. In 1994, newspapers around the world blared the headline, "Gospel Singer Named Artist of the Year Turns in His Awards After Confirming He Had an Affair with a Fellow Married Singer." From 1994 to 2002 Michael English's life went from bad to worse. Public shame, divorce, broken relationships, drug addiction, even homelessness. But in 2002, God reached out and rescued Michael from himself. Today Michael is whole again, and in this book he tells his story of redemption.

Publisher's Weekly

In May 1994, just a week after receiving four of the Christian music industry's coveted Dove Awards, English's double life came crashing down around him, as he confessed to an extramarital affair with a fellow singer who was pregnant with his child. But being fodder for national headlines was hardly the nadir of the North Carolina musician's fall from grace. After separating from the wife he had married barely out of his teens, he had a string of lovers and embraced the Nashville party scene, eventually becoming dangerously addicted to prescription painkillers like OxyContin. His memoir spares none of the gruesome details of how his addiction damaged or severed important relationships and wrecked his health. After a stint in rehab, English got clean, only to relapse a couple more times before rediscovering the God he'd been singing about all those years. He likens himself to the biblical prodigal son, "who had to get all the way to the absolute bottom before his desperation drove him home." English's loyal fans will enjoy this revealing kiss-and-tell, which often reads like a who's who of gospel music and ends with an encouraging if predictable message about God's forgiveness.

    This review was written for The Prodigal Comes Home, Softcover.
    I have been a fan of Michael's for just a short time and have admired the emotion he puts into his singing. I have also seen some interview footage and realized how humble he is. I wanted to get into the depths of the man and this book does that. My heart goes out to him and thank God he did what he did to come back.

    This review was written for The Prodigal Comes Home, Softcover.
    This was an awesome book, to see how far down Michael went, only to allow the Lord to bring him back up again, this time with his priorities in order. Very encouraging, as well as painful, in the way he treated his first wife concerning the other womans' baby. But praise be to God, He has fully restored Michael to continue praising in song and worship, with an even greater anointing than the first time around!

    English is painfully honest concerning his fall from grace and the tragic consequences that followed. God was amazing and English appears indeed grateful. I was puzzled by omissions concerning his marriages from a biblical perspective

    It is easy to appreciate the honesty with which Mr. English shares his fall and rededication. It is hard to understand some of the choices after he was restored.
