The Prodigal God: Recovering the Heart of the Christian Faith
Our lives are replete with images, songs, and recollections of home. The story of the prodigal son tugs on our hearts because we all have a God-designed longing for home. The Prodigal God gently leads the reader towards a fuller understanding of how God has provided a way for all of us to enjoy the home He is preparing for us.

Beyond the Sentimentalism
If you assumed that prodigal referred to a sinner who repented, if you thought the Biblical account of the prodigal son was written that we might know God's amazing love for us, or if you have ever been confused about the older brother's seemingly legitimate response to an unwarranted banquet, then this small gift book will open your eyes and your heart to a parable that has infinite implications beyond the sentimentalism every Sunday school curriculum has perpetually taught. In this rich parable, Jesus clearly demonstrates that both the irreligious wayward son and the religious older brother are on parallel paths, neither of which lead to fulfillment or to a connection to God.

Revealing God's Grace
But how is God a prodigal? According to the dictionary, the defining behavior of a prodigal is his reckless spending. This parable is striking in revealing God's grace to us, but we would be amiss if we did not dwell on the costliness of that grace. When you rightly consider the gospel in all its robustness, what better term could be used of our God, who has held back nothing to redeem His own?

An Unforgettable Gift
If you know a devoted "older brother," a penitent "younger brother," or anyone who never tires of hearing of the many facets of the gospel, The Prodigal God would make an unforgettable gift. Or if your family is ready for a meaty read-aloud book that has the potential of impacting the entire family for generations to come, then The Prodigal God is one of the few titles that qualify.

Timothy Keller was born and raised in Pennsylvania, and educated at Bucknell University, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Westminster Theological Seminary. He was first a pastor in Hopewell, Virginia. In 1989, he started Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan with his wife, Kathy, and their three sons. Today, Redeemer has nearly six thousand regular attendees at five services, a host of daughter churches, and is planting churches in large cities throughout the world.
