I was sitting in church one Sunday, reflecting on statements that were spoken by the pastor about his life and his walk with God. In telling of his relationship with the Lord, it was clear that he had been blessed with knowing Jesus most of his life. He raised two sons in the church; they’ve started lives of their own and have blessed the pastor with grandchildren. I was struck by the contrast between his life and the lives of those of us who did not have that experience. In fact, some of us have traveled roads that greatly deviate from the path of this pastor. 
I write this book for all the Prodigal Parents and their children. Many parents have squandered opportunities, and it is only later in life that we realize the most important things we could have taught our children. The world is filled with men and women who would love to have the opportunity to do it over again regarding how they communicated Christ—if they even communicated Christ to their children. 
The book goes straight to what is important. It emphasizes the urgency of knowing Jesus Christ as Lord and makes no apologies for imploring the reader to know Jesus. Why wouldn’t the book take that path? As one who once was blind but now can see, it only makes sense that a parent who has now been enlightened would tirelessly and ceaselessly communicate the goodness of God, the need of the Savior, and the way of salvation. 
“It is never too late!” The Prodigal Parent will help many adult Christians tell their sons and daughters (and grandchildren, nieces, and nephews) what they wish they would have said when the children were still under their roofs. In some cases, parents may still have that opportunity.
