Coming Home to God
Author O P Robertson
A 75-page evangelistic book addressed to an unconverted, perhaps thoughtful seeking reader. O. Palmer Robertson uses the parable of the Prodigal Son to describe the way people come home to God. As the story unfolds we discover that this return wasn't our plan; it was God's. With many illustrations and gentle arguments the reader is persuaded to return to God.
In this complex world God and mankind seem to live in completely separate spheres - the plan of God is perfect whilst the plans of mankind are at their best flawed and at their worst ugly and destructive. But is God as far removed from us as he sometimes seems? In fact, God is never far away - his involvement in our lives in never totally absent from the instinctive understanding of the world in which we live.
However much people may set themselves against God, however much they like to think of themselves as self-determining, the plan of God will never be thwarted. However hollow and worthless lives may seem; however far away the sense of truly belonging to God may appear there is a way back. There is a coming home to God.
