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.

For all believers and non-believers

Excellent book, completely beyond the normal view of this story. Loved it. Highly recommend it for elder and younger siblings alike.

Startling new insights of an age old story

This story will have you see yourself and others around you through a critically compassionate lens. It presents the truth of salvation to the individual and the collective, but only after clarifying the roles we play in this Biblical drama. Having denied ourselves the feast we so desperately need, God pursues us with an open invitation.
