Publisher's Description

Previously published as A Tale of Two Sons

Charles Dickens. William Shakespeare. Garrison Keillor. They’re all part of the chorus of literary geniuses who expressed admiration for The Parable of the Prodigal Son as outstanding literature. After all, it is a powerful drama, rich in detail, powerfully succinct, and intensely personal. But beyond the literary critiques—besides being one of the most celebrated written works of all time—the message of this parable is one we can’t afford to ignore.

In The Prodigal Son, John MacArthur takes the story back to its roots, when Jesus’ words were absolutely revolutionary. As one of America’s most beloved Bible teachers, MacArthur leads us through the minefields of interpretation and restores the simple yet profound brilliance of this passage. Giving engrossing historical background, The Prodigal Son will reveal Christ’s original message as intended for the Pharisees, the disciples, and the world today.  

Gain an enlightening perspective into the prodigal son’s story and embrace God’s love anew with The Prodigal Son.

    John MacArthur has taken me deeper into this parable then I have ever gone before. He takes his regular easy to read, insightful approach and applies it here as well as he has in any other book that I've read. His book is eyeopening to sin that is in my life. And he clearly explains what Jesus was trying to relate to his audience of the pharisees and ultimately to us through this parable. Read it, study it, and pass it on to others that want to understand this scripture better.

    Finally, I understand the meaning of this parable. John brings out the cultural background to us and explains what Jesus taught when He gave this parable is exactly what it means today. If you don't have this book, buy it. I have given several copies as gifts and people rave over it.

    i have found that this version of the two sons is very insightfull. too much attention has been focus on the one son who chose to leave, none on the son that stayed.

    John McArthur helped me to truly understanding this parable and see it from the perspective of the Father. I thank God taht He did not wait for me to come to me but He saw me afar off and ran to welcom me back home. This book is a must read and then pass on.
