In this book, SAVED BY GRACE: The Prodigal Son, the author Emeka Obiandu has made a sublime effort to draw the reader’s attention to the lavish grace God showers upon us, albeit some may dispute it. Discussing how we all benefit from the undeserving grace that God shows us daily, Mr Obiandu navigates the reader through the trajectories of theological doctrines such as grace and atonement to expose the parable of the prodigal son, the gracious father and the resentful elder brother. You may not necessarily agree with all his arguments and hermeneutics, but if you are a Christian, you cannot honestly say you are not challenged about how gracious God is to you, by the time you finish assimilating the contents of this book.

This book grows on you as you turn each page, you literally feel as if you’re being drawn in, to look at GRACE through new lens. The Author writes from a deep conviction, which is reflective in his penmanship. I recommend this book because I believe in its message, for by grace we are saved through faith. Rev. Ian Patterson-Sharpe, Rehoboth International Christian Centre, UK
Reading this book, “Saved By Grace: The Prodigal Son
”, has got me thinking more of the twin Christian Doctrines of Salvation and Grace, which I find both humbling and reassuring. Using his personal experiences to reiterate the parable’s message, the author Emeka Obiandu takes the reader on a voyage of discovery, giving a whole new perspective into divine grace. What most readers would find fascinating is how grace has always been the basis of God’s relationship with man from Adam, rather than seeing grace as unique to the current Dispensation of Grace. The backslider in the far country will, in this book, find both encouragement to repent and assurance of forgiveness. But so also will the sinner, who is contemplating whether or not to come to Christ, thinking that he’s beyond redemption on account of his sins.
It is my hope that this book, would have a similar humbling effect on every reader as it had on me. Dele Adeoye Senior Pastor Generations of God Church International (GGCI) United Kingdom
Many Christians will find this book, ‘SAVED BY GRACE: THE PRODIGAL SON’ by Emeka Obiandu very useful because it painstakingly clarifies and reinforces what they already know about sin and forgiveness. When it comes to sin, the Bible makes no exception when it says, ‘… for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.’ That makes us all equal debtors to the Throne of Grace. Citing his own personal experiences, the author reminds Christians that we are all prodigals in our own ways, but more importantly, in my view, he draws our attention to how gracious God has always been to man. This book will also speak to the unbeliever who might find the doctrine of salvation by grace quite appealing, if not inspiring and as the wake-up call he may have been waiting for to come to Christ.
The reassuring message of salvation by grace is so powerfully captured in the concluding paragraph of the book when Emeka, as a final reminder, writes: ‘Salvation is, therefore, a gift to man from God, wrapped with grace and received by man through faith in Christ Jesus. There is no other way’. I highly recommend this book’ Okechuku Ashley Mpi
