God's never-ending pursuit of all prodigals, whether they're far from home or nearby, is the theme of this complete package of preaching and worship resources. The timeless story of the Prodigal Son is examined through first-person portrayals of its characters: the prodigal, the elder son, the father, the mother, and a servant. The five monologues are perfect for use in midweek services -- and with companion sermons for Ash Wednesday and Good Friday plus seven orders of worship, Returning Home provides everything busy pastors need for a total Lenten program. The material is also excellent for a sermon series, small group discussion, or personal devotional reading.

A graduate of Wartburg College and Luther Seminary, David R. Mattson is the pastor of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church (ELCA) in Dana Point, California. He has previously served congregations in Arizona, California, and Iowa.
