Praise for Timothy Keller and The Prodigal God

"Thrilling . . . Brilliant. Keller elegantly explains the goodness of God, redefining sin, lostness, grace, and salvation." —HeartsandMinds.com

"An amazing, thought-provoking, illuminating work." —Examiner.com

"The insights Tim Keller has about the two individuals in the story, and about the heart of God who loves them both, wrecked me afresh. Tim's thoughts deserve a hearing worldwide." —Bill Hybels, founding and senior pastor, Willow Creek Community Church

"Explain, explode, expose, explore—all of these Jesus did by telling the parable of the prodigal son. In this book, Timothy Keller shows us something of how this story actually reveals the heart of God, and, if we read it carefully, our own hearts. This brief exposition is unsettling and surprisingly satisfying. Like seeing something as your own home, or your own self, with new eyes. Enjoy and profit." —Mark Dever, senior pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, D.C.

"When it comes to the gospel of Jesus Christ, Timothy Keller is simply brilliant." —Mark Driscoll, pastor, Mars Hill Church and president, Acts 29 Church Planting Network

"Keller will be remembered as a pioneer of the new urban Christians." —
Christianity Today magazine 

"I thank God for him." —Billy Graham

From AudioFile

Keller's approachable treatise tackles the parable of the Prodigal Son as it relates to Christians, most especially those who have come to believe that the church is fraught with hypocrisy. He reinterprets the parable to show that the Christian church is made up of "younger brothers" (those who are wayward, stubborn, and unfaithful) and "elder brothers" (those who are haughty, jealous, and close-minded) as a way of understanding how the younger brothers become alienated from the elder-brother-run church community. Keller reads his own work with both patience and enthusiasm. He never sounds preachy--only excited that his reinterpretation has helped so many disillusioned Christians return to their faith. His reading makes the down-to-earth and straightforward text an informative and revelatory listen. A.A. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
