I’ve always been captivated by the story of the prodigal son in Luke 15. Matt Carter provides a new, important angle on this story for contemporary American culture. He compares our entire society to the prodigal son, who wonders what lies beyond the safety of his father’s home and heads into a life of indulgence. I appreciate his unique insights that are spot-on for this generation.

He provides interesting and sobering statistics about our culture, along with his personal story of how God transformed his life. It’s an engaging read that I had a hard time putting down. There are several spelling errors that could have been fixed with a closer edit. However, overall I enjoyed this book’s wise, yet down-to-earth perspective on a familiar Gospel story. If you have been intrigued by this Bible story like me, you’ll appreciate Matt Carter’s insights as well.

I received a preview copy of The Long Walk Home from B&H Publishers.
