The Prodigal God (Google eBook)
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.

Great Insight into an old storyUser Review - Christianbook.com
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.
