From one of America’s most beloved storytellers comes his most spiritual book since The Christmas Box. The New York Times bestselling author of The Christmas Box and The Walk series returns with a modern-day, Christmas-themed retelling of the story of the prodigal son.
It has been said that sometimes the greatest hope in our lives is just a second chance to do what we should have done right in the first place. This is the story of my second chance.
When Luke Crisp graduates from business school, his father, CEO and cofounder of Fortune 500 Crisp’s Copy Centers, is ready to share some good news: he wants to turn the family business over to his son. But Luke has other plans. Taking control of his trust fund, Luke leaves home to pursue a life of reckless indulgence.
But when his funds run out, so do his friends. Humbled, alone, and too ashamed to ask his father for help, Luke secretly takes a lowly job at one of his father’s copy centers. There he falls in love with a struggling single mother and begins to understand the greatest source of personal joy.
Lost December is New York Times bestselling author Richard Paul Evans’s modern-day holiday version of the biblical story of the prodigal son, a powerful tale of redemption, hope, and the true meaning of love.
Lost December. By Richard Paul Evans
This is a wonderful story of a man who sinks to the bottom, and the rises back to the top with the help of several friends, and his Father, who all show him forgiveness and love.
Couldn't put it down
This remarkable story of redemption and the love between a father and son brought streams if tears running down my cheeks. All fathers and sons who care in any way for one another will recognize threads of truth from their own lives reading this book. I downloaded it yesterday and finished it at 4:20 a.m. Just couldn't put it down. I'm going to my Twitter account @ADHD_FA to recommend this book next. Thanks to Richard and Simon & Schuster for a great reading experience.
This book was very hard to put down! It contained so many Bible truths! I look forward to more e-books from Richard Evans...and thank him for writing a book with many "lessons" we all need to learn!
