I love the way you inserted the verses in parallel throughout the piece. A beautiful, contemporary re-telling of a precious story.
I can't believe this one doesn't have more comments--it's a wonderful, fresh telling of a familiar story, and done exceptionally well.
This is very good. I really don't like to jump back and forth, but there's no other way that this could have been done. You chose the right format.
Wonderfully interwoven. Great work.
You brought an ancient parable into today's world and showed how it is as ever true now and it was then.
Great message and writing!
I have missed your writing, David. This is exceptionally structured and wonderfully insightful. Excellent.
Very, very moving. I love this retelling of the story. Thanks for sharing this
The interweaving showed the parallels quite nicely, but made it feel a little choppy. (BUT I loved how it brought the parable to a 'modern day' level!) I could picture the events--good job. :-)
Very well done! I liked how your interwove the current and past story of the prodigal son. The modern setting is easier to relate to for today's young readers. A wonderful piece. Thanks for sharing!
Your title is perfect. This is very well written -- easy to read and nice flow. What a great retelling of a great Bible story. You've brought the written pages of God's Word to life. Wonderful writing.
