Penguin Audio The Prodigal God Recovering the Heart of the Christian Faith (audiocd)

Newsweek called renowned minister 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 of why we should believe in God. Now, in The Prodigal God, he uses one of the best-known Christian parables to reveal an unexpected message of hope and salvation.

Taking his trademark intellectual approach to understanding Christianity, Keller uncovers the essential message of Jesus, locked inside his most familiar parable. 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.

2.5 hours. 2 CDs. Read by the author. Unabridged.

I have listened to the Prodigal God 5 times and each time I hear something new and meaningful. Timothy Keller reminds us where we came from and where we should be going.

I enjoyed Keller's take on the parable, as he emphasizes, of the prodigal sonS (plural). Keller, as always, gives a new perspective on something one sincerely believed one knew. Yet again, I must re-think God's position and my response.

This is an incredible book/CD, everything in it is gold. The way that Keller "reveals" the truth about the older brother in this story will cause most in the Christian community to examine their lives again and will no doubt lead them to godly repentance. Also the way the gospel is presented in this book is so clear and understandable that I want to share it with my neighbors who do not know Jesus. This is a great book.

I loved this book so much that I used the teachings to prepare for a women's retreat which I led last weekend. Many who were in attendance at the retreat have asked that we plan a reunion to discuss how our lives have been impacted by what we learned.
