    Story
    "Absolutely Liberating!"

    This book is a must-have for parents of prodigal sons and daughters. As a parent of two sons who are in different types of prison, I daily release my sons to God. God is helping me to understand that He does not need my help, and when I do intervene, I do more harm than good. This book is just confirmation that I am on the right path in stopping my enabling behavior.

    Story
    "Way too Religious, thinking about returning it."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I am having a hard time getting through this book. I think it could be very helpful but I didn't realize how religious it is. I can only "give it to God" so many times. I need concrete steps and so far I haven't gotten any. I don't need scripture read and quoted to me. I think this should be sold as a Christian book and there needs to be some kind of warning.


    What was most disappointing about Allison Bottke’s story?

    Way too Religious


    What about Margaret Strom’s performance did you like?

    She's fine. I have no issue with her reading


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration!


    Any additional comments?

    If you are not religious and are just looking for concrete help don't bother with this book. I am looking for something else.
