"This is a book you will read once—all at once—in one sitting."
—James L. Ferrell, author of The Peacegiver
From beloved Deseret News columnist Jerry Johnston comes this intimate and inspirational true narrative of adversity and redemption. Allowing readers to glimpse behind the curtain of his private life, Jerry recounts a time of deep personal challenge when his heart hardened and his thoughts darkened—a time when, losing all bearings, he turned from his faith. Although he is a man of achievement, his story is rather a story of God’s achievement—how the Lord healed one man’s broken heart and restored it to hope, and how He will do the same for each of us. Jerry’s tender confession of his human struggles points us to Christ and creates a poignant tale of the only kind of success that really matters. Difficult to put down and impossible to forget, Rescued will inspire you to live better—more honestly, more joyfully, more contentedly—and to trust in the never-failing arm of the One who never gives up.

I understand the artwork is coordinating with the title, but it gives the appearance that this is a book about the actual prodigal son... and it's not. It's a real story of a man whose life traveled a unique path and he had some great faith-affirming experiences. Maybe if they had actors posing for a scene from the story? It's a nice story and faith-affirming. Some people's path meanders around before it straightens out, and his experience is a lesson to us all.
