In 1994, amidst scandal, adultery and shattered lives, Grammy-winning singer Michael English fell from the heights of Christian music. But what most people know about Michael is only the beginning of the story. Suddenly divorced and desperate to escape his crumbling life, Michael turned to alcohol and drugs – addictions that cost him his fortune, his home and nearly his life. In and out of rehab, Michael struggled to reconcile his personal failures and troubled childhood with the idea of a loving and merciful God.

The Prodigal Comes Home is the honest, gripping story, a testament to God’s mercy and the enduring love of family. Michael’s story shows that God can make even sin-broken relationships whole again – and that His grace shines even in our darkest hours.




“Vivid…a deeply felt memoir.”
