Timothy Keller - The Prodigal God
In The Prodigal God, New York pastor Timothy Keller uses the story of the Prodigal Son to shine a light on the central, beautiful 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 reader to all the characters in this timeless story, showing that it concerns not just a wayward son, but also a judgemental older brother and, most importantly, a loving father.
This short but powerful book is a reminder to the faithful, an explanation to the seeker and finally an invitation to all – both older and younger brothers – to enter in to the ‘unique, radical nature of the gospel’: the reckless, spendthrift love of God.
