Is someone you know struggling with drug or alcohol abuse? Perhaps there was a time when many of us could answer this in the negative. These days, however, almost everyone has at least one family member, friend, or coworker whose lives have been affected by addiction. It is a devastating conflict with no apparent victors and a casualty list that grows every day. Prodigal Wisdom is a collection of scripture-based devotional meditations gathered from one family's trials and tribulations as they struggled with their youngest son's addictions for fourteen years. Author Yvonne Burrage shares the meaningful lessons learned from her family's heartache, anger, fear, and, most importantly, hope. Burrage's story may bring you to tears with her honest and open portrayal of suffering caused by her family's battle against addiction, but it will also allow you to take to heart those guiding biblical principles that enabled them to persevere. Prodigal Wisdom offers encouragement, perspective, and an opportunity to reflect. It addresses questions on the debilitating effects of addiction from a Christian viewpoint, offering a deep and intimate insight into the struggle with self-destruction that has run rampant in our society.
