Basing his message on the story of the prodigal son and other writings of Scripture, Greg Laurie offers the best news imaginable: The God Of The Second Chance has already taken care of your pardon! In The God Of The Second Chance, Christian readers will discover how to obtain and experience forgiveness. Why do we wander away from God in the first place? For the same reasons the Prodigal Son in one of Jesus' most famous parables did. We are drawn away by the world. We aren't completely surrendered to God. We have failed to move forward in our faith. But like that well-loved parable, our story can also have a triumphant conclusion, marked by repentance, reconciliation, and rejoicing. As Laurie writes in In The God Of The Second Chance, "During his ministry on earth, Jesus was referred to as 'the friend of sinners'. . . Jesus was, and still is, the best friend sinners have ever had. He extends a hand of friendship to us right now and, if we will notice, that hand bears a wound in it -- a wound he received when he went to the cross to demonstrate his incredible love for us. You can take hold of his hand today. " The God Of The Second Chance is "must" reading for all Christians regardless of denomination, sect or church affiliation. -- Midwest Book Review

Turn around and come back...
Maybe you’ve been avoiding God. Maybe some pain has been driving you away. Maybe you’re not sure you can trust Him. Or maybe you’ve just gotten lazy. Bit by bit you’ve strayed—and now you've blown it, and you wonder if God even wants you anymore.
In this encouraging book, Greg Laurie shines the light on an often-forgotten facet of God's character: He is the God of the second chance. He waits eagerly for your return. Your heart may be hard, your life may be shattered, but God is waiting for you with open arms.
He will welcome you home.
