"THE OLDER BROTHER RETURNS," says Fr. Michael Scanlan, "is an exciting application of the classic parable." Scanlan, who is president of the Franciscan University of Steubenville, writes: "I read the book initially as a patient coming under the scalpel of an expert surgeon. ... I based a retreat week on the material of the book and found new freedom in making a firm commitment to change into a compassionate and merciful father."
Ralph Martin, director of Renewal Ministries, calls Lozano's book "an original and sensitive contribution to the literature of spiritual growth and holiness that will be helpful to many."
Donald Bartel, serving with the Navigators, writes, "THE OLDER BROTHER RETURNS will help make it a positive encounter when an unbeliever seeking to meet our Father meets us first."
Msgr. Thomas Herron of St. Charles Borromeo Seminary observes: "What Neal Lozano has identified as the 'older brother syndrome,' seems to me to be quite a common phenomenon...Neal's observations are made from a thoroughly biblical, theological perspective." -- Book Description
