Newsweek called New York Times best-selling author 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, he uses one of the best known Christian parables to reveal an unexpected message of hope and salvation.

Taking his trademark intellectual approach to understanding Christianity, Keller uncovers the essential message of Jesus, locked inside his most familiar parable. 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.

    " A fresh new way of looking at the parable of the prodigal son as told by Jesus in the Gospels. Both sons were prodigal in their own way but the oldest son more so because of his unwillingness to forgive. "

    " A quick, wonderful read. I never thought about the older, law-abiding brother in the parable of the prodigal son, and it makes so much sense that we can be just as sinful by adhering to God's laws with the wrong heart as we can by disregarding His laws and running from them. "

    " This is a book that I am going to have to read either annually or semi-annually. It's that type of book. It's not only a short book, but it's also a quick read. Despite that, Keller hits at some of the foundational points of humanity. The book is about the parable of two sons--commonly known as the Parable of the Prodigal Son. Keller's point is that the story isn't just about the one son--the one who ends up in a pig sty; the father had two sons. And, both were lost. But who ends up at the feast? It is an important reminder that a pendulum swings not only in one direction. "

    " If you grew up attending church the focus in parable of the Prodigal Son typically was always directed at the rebellious son who came back again. But what about the Father and the brother he left behind and the cultural backdrop that made this such a scandalous story to the 1st Century audience? You will find yourself asking in what way are you the younger or elder brother and do you truly want the Father or just His goods? "
