Publisher's Description

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

Newsweek called New York Times bestselling 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 for 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.

Author Bio

As the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, Tim Keller started his congregation with a few dozen people. It now draws over five thousand weekly attendees who meet in three Manhattan locations. Redeemer has since spawned a movement of churches across America and throughout major world cities. Many pastors model their churches on Redeemer and Tim's thoughtful style of preaching. Dr. Keller lives in New York City with his wife and sons.

    I borrowed this book from my brother and loved it. It is very challenging and revealing. After reading it I bought two books, one to keep myself and an extra copy. I also bought the dvd and discussion guide for our church small group. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to grow in their christian faith and relationship with God. I plan of reading this book periodically to make sure I don't let myself fall back into the "Elder Brother" role.

    I'm a pastor and reading this book gave me a different look than how I have always looked at this parable. The author is very creative and made for an easy reading.

    I have recommended this book to many people. I saw myself as the older brother and it gave me the insight to work on being less judgmental. The author does a wonderful job of bring clarity to this issue.

    Just wanted to provide a non-opinion based clarification of the definition of prodigal. Use #2 in this case.

    prodigal |ˈprädigəl| adjective
    1 spending money or resources freely and recklessly; wastefully extravagant (prodigal habits die hard)
    2 having or giving something on a lavish scale (the dessert was crunchy with brown sugar and prodigal with whipped cream)
