The Other Prodigal

This is by far the most requested piece by Nathan Howe.  The Other Prodigal is a song about redemption, forgiveness, and the power of a father’s love for both of his sons. The song was written in 2003 in the coastal town of Ulladulla, New South Wales, Australia.  The text was inspired by a 2002 address by Jeffrey R. Holland.
