    In Rose Publishing's The Parable of the Prodigal Son, key issues are tackled from the story of Jesus' lesson. Key features include (1) an overview of the story, (2) questions for consideration, (3) and psalms for comfort. The overview is clear, concise, and yet comprehensive in application and consideration of Christ's audience. There are at least five questions to challenge our hearts as to what the Lord Jesus meant by His parable this and application in the main text of the pamphlet. At the end, the author has inserted several psalms that apply to parents with prodigals. These are actually quite comforting and reasonable to list at the end of the topic at hand. Overall, this is a pamphlet that will bring both challenge and comfort. Often we need both, not merely one or the other.... Therefore, this pamphlet is for YOU. Why not spend a couple of dollars to buy it and maybe even offer it to others who need comfort and challenge?

    Understanding the Father's Heart

    Come high or low, rise or fall, our Heavenly Father loves us. We may well misunderstand the love of the Father, however, and the family member that demonstrates this misunderstanding most overtly may not be the one who misunderstands it most profoundly.

    In the Holy Bible, we find an example, given by our Lord, of a two family members that did not appear to understand a particular fathers love.

    The pamphlet, The Parable of the Prodigal Son: Jesus Story of the Lost Son, by Rose Publishing, looks at the various aspects of this story told by Jesus in the New Testament, reminding us of the unconditional love of the father; the unappreciative response, initially, of his younger son, followed by his eventual sincere repentance; and the complete misunderstanding, on the part of a legalistic and self-righteous older brother, of what a fathers heart is all about.

    In our own times, this booklet encourages the parents of prodigal children to trust the Lord to work in their childrens lives, and to do His own unique work in His own unique time in the lives of them all. It also encourages all of us to recognize that His love is vast, unmerited and free, and reaches out to all His children, including those who, for a time, go astray.



    Personally, I find this a helpful booklet. I am glad that the writer gives the Jewish context in which Jesus speaks, and, as well, notes the other parables adjacent to this one in the Biblical text that emphasize a similar message. I am happy, likewise, that the Holy Bible is allowed to speak for itself, in that small, but entire passages are cited. In dire situations, we often ask What can I do? or, What should I not do? Two very practical sections of the pamphlet are Invitation to Trust, and Avoid Giving In To Anger. The booklet also includes helpful psalms, and various prayers, including a prayer for prodigals. Some comparisons are, helpfully, charted.

    The booklet demonstrates a very sympathetic grasp of the dilemma of parents who have a wandering loved one, and who do not know how to deal with the angst as they await his or her return.

    This story may not appear connected to the booklet, above, but, I happen to know a family in which the youngest brother took a brief foray into the world of unbelief. It was, by no means, as flagrant a journey as that of the Biblical prodigal son; the young man was, nonetheless, for a time, out-of-fellowship with Christian norms. What I observed on the part of his older siblings in his absence, was a manifest yearning for his return, and great joy when it finally happened. They had not feared that his return would diminish any of their own familial joys, because their parents loved them all as much as they loved the absent younger brother; and they realized that that same love was strong enough to weather some vicissitudes, including the possibility that the son might have to learn, perhaps, through hard experience.

    The mother, in one statement, later, wrote, Thank you to all my beautiful kids who are always a blessing, never a disappointment and my greatest joy. I am so proud of all of you.

    Surely, that is the heart of a true parent, whose initial response to the newborn infant was not based on merit, but on love, and, if that is so in the earthly realm, how much more in the Heavenly.

    And the end of the story can be truly surprising only today, I read the obituary of a missionary who had spent a lifetime serving the Lord in a foreign field, an answer to his godly mothers prayers: in his teens, though, her faith must have been sorely tested, as, prior to his conversion, he stood before the juvenile courts.

    The topic is both timely, and needed, and will undoubtedly find appreciation from many readers. Rose Publishing has provided me with an advanced reader copy.

    Let me first state that I received this pamphlet from Rose Publishing as a pre-published edition for free in exchange for this review.

    I have studied the Prodigal Son Parable for many years pondering its meaning then and now. I have even taught lessons on this Parable. This pamphlet starts out with the parable and a brief cultural explanation. It goes way beyond what is taught regarding its meaning. It shows there are actually three prodigals involved. We can easily identify the younger son who takes his inheritance and blows it, and the older son who seems steadfast filled with resentment and bitterness. How many of us ever consider the father as a prodigal?

    There are many thought provoking questions highlighted in the text. They are not frivolous questions. We need to ponder them and find our own answers to them. I believe we could all have similar answer, but also, many that are unique to ourselves.

    This pamphlet is sure to be an asset for anyone seeking a deeper understanding and awareness of this great parable. Rose Publishing has really hit the mark with this publication. It is colorful, well organized, and extremely well written.

    Rose Publishings The Parable of the Prodigal Son takes a look at the parable of Jesus and analyzes the thoughts, actions, and reactions of not only the main characters in the parable but also those listening to Jesus. Rather than focus on the prodigal son only, this pamphlet analyzes the story of the prodigal son and discusses the three characters and their actions in an easy to follow study.

    Retelling the Story

    Rather than giving you the Scriptures word for word, it retells the story, highlighting the setting and purpose of the parable. It explains the thoughts and culture behind each instance, and sheds light on what the original listeners expected to happen and how the story went contrary to the custom.

    It discusses the actions of the father, who was moved by compassion instead of justice, revenge, or pride. It shows how forgiveness brings reconciliation and joy.

    It answers points that people often make, like If Im a good person, life should treat me well. If Im an evil person, life should treat me accordingly. It shows that being good doesnt mean we deserve happiness and well-being.

    It contrasts the two responses: the father and the older brother. Compassion vs lack of compassion. Son of yours vs brother of yours. It also contrasts the two sons: open rebellion vs lack of compassion. Even though the younger son was openly rebellious, the older son had a sense of entitlement, lack or love, and a sense of justice that hardened his heart.

    The study tells how the story is actually three prodigals: the father, the older son, and the younger son.

    It shows that the need for material possessions wasnt why he came back and the lack of material possessions wasnt why the older son was angry.

    It also looks at the reactions of the listeners, and shows how the listeners had sympathy for the older brother.

    It shows how the story parallels with Israel, and gives examples such as Jonah, and demonstrates the contrast of Gods grace vs. what we deserve.

    Application

    After the retelling and commentary it gives us the application, showing how Jesus wants us to be like the father in the story toward others. Throughout the retelling it offers several questions for reflection. It covers building trust, avoiding anger, and advices not to withhold love until a prodigal has earned it, but to be loving and patient, recognizing every step theyve made in the right direction.

    Prayers

    It discusses the difficulties of praying for prodigals because of the emotions and hurt. It gives advice on praying for and dealing with prodigals and gives several Psalms to help deal with worry, anxiety, anguish, sadness, sorrow, protection, comfort, and prodigals.

    Conclusion

    Most of the time when we here about the prodigal son we only hear about the youngest son. This study covers all three characters, discussing their actions and attitudes. It follows up with advice on dealing with similar situations. Overall it is a quick and basic study that gives a good message with lots of sound advice. It would be a good study for both personal and group studies.

    Most, if not all of us, can recall a time in our lives where we either have been or have known of a prodigal. Most people can also probably recall a time where they felt that things were unjust, as though someone was getting something they did not deserve, and we were not being treated as well as we should be. This pamphlet, The Parable of the Prodigal Son, by Rose Publishing, acknowledges the frequency of prodigal situations as well as the seriousness of such a trial.

    This compact and handy commentary on the prodigal story deals with three different aspects: the father, the son, and the brother. There are scripture references leading the reader back to the source, which is the ultimate source for all of life, the Bible. The background information is given in a clear and concise way. Reflection questions help bring the matter home to our own lives.

    The different perspectives on who the prodigal really is are demonstrated briefly, however one may question calling the father a prodigal, if they had assumed that the word prodigal was in a negative sense and because of thinking the father was a picture of God. It might also be a stretch to call the brother a prodigal, though it is appreciated how the important fact that we all need to be rescued is conveyed here. In any case, it sparks the reader to further investigate the case himself.

    Last but not least, the subject is dealt with in a compassionate way, such as how the writer(s) use the Psalms to comfort those who are waiting the return of their loved ones. There is the encouragement to "hope in God" (Psalm 42). The helpful information and support in this item could be a gift for anyone, but especially those who are currently suffering the loss of a prodigal.
