Publisher's Summary

Timothy Keller focuses on Jesus' best-known parable - the prodigal son - as a paradigm for the central messages of Christianity: grace, hope and salvation.

In The Prodigal God, New York pastor Timothy Keller uses the story of the prodigal son to shine a light on the beautiful central message of Jesus: the gospel of grace, hope and salvation.

Keller argues that the parable of the prodigal son, while Jesus' best-known parable, is also his least understood. He introduces the listener to all the characters in this timeless story, showing that it concerns not just a wayward son but also a judgmental older brother and, most importantly, a loving father.

In this challenging and inspiring book, Timothy Keller invites both faithful believers and curious outsiders to come to a new and totally life-changing understanding of the central message of the Christian faith.

An interesting view on a well known story.

Many people know the story of the prodigal son, but this books goes into greater depth and also analyses the side of the son who stayed which is often rarely spoken of. A great listen.
