Review

"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

Format: Paperback
What a timely gift for all who seek to express God's loving heart in our day! Author Neal Lozano has served as an instrument of the Great Physician in providing a healthy dose of medicine for the soul and spirit. It is a very fitting book to read as we prepare for the new millennium. As Pope John Paul II urged recently, "Let no one behave like the elder brother in the Gospel parable who refuses to enter the house to celebrate (cf. Lk. 15:25-30). May the joy of forgiveness be stronger and greater than any resentment." THE OLDER BROTHER RETURNS is an excellent means to apply that timely message -- and the classic story about the prodigal son and the older brother (in all of us!).

The moment I recieved 'The Older Brother Returns' I had a very hard time putting it down. I laughed. I cried. It is very thought provoking. I want to send a copy to every one I know. This is the type book you just don't let out of sight. It is extremely inspiring, as I have said. I absolutely reccommend this to anyone down on themselves, down on life, down on the upcoming year, with all the hoopla you hear coming from the media. This book will turn your life around. It did mine.

Format: Paperback
Neal Lozano's The Older Brother Returns focuses on the older brother in the parable of the prodigal son. Lozano uses an informal story-telling style to help the reader to expose tendencies to judgmentalism, spiritual pride, legalism, lack of repentance, lack of forgiveness, etc., and to help the reader experience God's love, mercy, and healing.

This book was recommended highly to me by someone it touched deeply. I found much that is good, insightful, and helpful, but it did not touch me deeply. The author is a Catholic member of the charismatic renewal and pastors an interdenominational Christian community.

Very thought provoking. I clearly see myself. Neal Lozano holds up a mirror and like a mirror, it reveals more that you may want to see.

Thank you for sharing your faith.
