Overview
John Michael is the prodigal son who has run away from his father, Jonathan Davis. With the pain of his mother's death haunting him, and a check from her life insurance policy in his pocket, John Michael seeks to find his place in the world. One dark decision after another create a trail of pain, poverty, and murder leaving John destitute and desperate. His father is forced to decide what to do with the pain his son's life has caused him as he waits. Written for parents and teenagers, the story reveals the unconditional love of God brushing past our failures, as it reaches out to us in the beauty of a father's acceptance and forgiveness which inevitably reaches far beyond The Waiting.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Something to be desired!   Feb 27, 2005
My wife got this for me on a hunch for Christmas. I guess for some reason, when we look at the back and see that the book is for parents and teenagers, we don't feel that it can apply to our lives. Don't let that fool you! Be prepared for something very special in "The Waiting" and don't be surprised if you can't put it down!

Consider this a modern day Prodigal son story. Well, if you know the parable Jesus told, it seems pretty obvious what's about to happen. Or is it? You take in the life of John Michael Davis, with his 2 brothers, older brother, Lewis, and younger brother, Phillip. Then you have dad, Jonathan. But suppose John Michael is ready to go into the real world with a rather large sum of cash. Dad, you gonna give me the blessing? Well...OK. But you are always welcome here and I still love you. The little brother doesn't want him to leave. The older brother says basically, "Fare thee well!"

Then he hits the streets. He meets some friends. A lot of these friends think he's crazy, seeing as how they've never actually had somebody like John Michael's dad who loves them. But because of your cash flow, you're always the man of the hour. That is until the obvious happens, you run out of money. What happens? You don't want to miss this!

Jesus had a passion for parables. Mark Rempel has a passion for people! Don't miss out!
 
Excellent Book  Feb 7, 2003
I picked this book up for a relaxing read and could not rest until I finished the book. Mark has done an excellent modern day version of the prodigal son.

At times you will wonder why this father is hanging in there. This book will warm your heart and bring back to mind our true feelings for those that we love dearly.....

This book will stir your emotions, bringing tears of joy and tears of regret. I believe that as a parent one of our worst fears is to not know where a child is. This book is a wonderful example of the unconditional love of God that reaches past our mistakes and failures and brings us into His acceptance and forgiveness.

This book will minister to parents and children alike.
