The New York Times bestselling author of The Prodigal Prophet uncovers the essential message of Jesus, locked inside his most familiar parable.

Newsweek called renowned minister Timothy Keller "a C.S. Lewis for the twenty-first century" in a feature on his first book, The Reason for God. In that book, he offered a rational explanation of why we should believe in God. Now, in The Prodigal God, Keller takes his trademark intellectual approach to understanding Christianity and uses the parable of the prodigal son to reveal an unexpected message of hope and salvation. 

Within that parable Jesus reveals God's prodigal grace toward both the irreligious and the moralistic. This book will challenge both the devout and skeptics to see Christianity in a whole new way.

Opinion

From Library Staff

The Prodigal God examines the parable of the Two Sons in a deep and heartfelt way that will leave you seeing both brothers and father in a new light. It will also lead to a lot of self-examination....

This book made me see the story of the lost son (from the book of Luke in the Bible) in a new light. It seemed a little long at times (even though it is a short book!) but it is well worth the read for anyone who enjoys having their eyes opened to a new perspective on a story you may have thought you already knew everything about!
