Wonderful insight into the parable, spoke to my heart. Helped me understand who Jesus was speaking to and what the message was. Put a different twist on allowing Jesus to speak His truths to my heart. Excellent for any believer who thinks they are following true to the teachings of Christ.
I have read books and heard sermons about the prodigal son but Mr. Keller adds another angle that I did not think of. Mr. Keller's analysis of the older son convicted me. This book is for Christians but also it could be given to non-Christians that have been affected by the church in a negative way.
First, look up the word "prodigal" in the dictionary. Then, you will see clearly how Tim Keller can call God the prodigal. This is a most insightful book into the mind and heart of God and how sinners need to respond to His generous salvation.
I loved the way Tim Keller showed me there were two victems in the prodical of the lost son. I learned that it's just as bad a sin to be obedient but with the wrong attitude. It shows the love of God in a more personal way. I plan on leading a Bible Study with this.
