Publisher's Summary

We desire to be transformed, to grow more and more like Christ. But for many of us, our strategies for change don’t work. We misperceive God as a judgmental Father, leaving us demoralized and paralyzed by shame. Stumbling Toward Wholeness offers a new strategy for spiritual growth and life transformation: regularly returning to the arms of a kind and loving Father.

There are many books that explore the parable of the Prodigal Son, but few approach it with the personal vulnerability and psychological insight of Andrew Bauman. Andrew shows how taking the time to identify with each of the brothers in this story can help us come to terms with our own brokenness and the need for God revealed in it. We discover a process of change that applies to each of us and a healing journey that moves us toward the likeness of the Father in how we love the people around us and address the pain others have caused us.

Amazing way to work toward healing.

Loved the analogy for the elder brother. Often we all feel anger and judgment toward others who seem to get away with poor behavior and we follow the rules. This highlights our need for our own healing to find peace and move toward receiving the lost in joy.

Great read for this parable and story we’ve all heard many times. I have always felt the elder brother wasn’t totally wrong in his feelings and this really brought it into perspective. I pray God changes me and I can truly heal my misguided emotions.
