Bringing Home The Prodigals by Rob Parsons

Most people are familiar with the story of the prodigal son. He demands his half of his father’s inheritance, leaves home, squanders everything, and decides it would be better to be a hired hand on dad’s farm than to starve to death. When he shows up with his speech, how does the dad respond? How does the brother respond?
