The Prodigal God: Recovering the Heart of the Christian Faith

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Timothy Keller

Narrated By: Timothy Keller

Publisher: Penguin Audio

Date: October 2008

Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

Summary:

The New York Times bestselling author of The Prodigal Prophet uncovers the essential message of Jesus, locked inside his most familiar parable.

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, 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.

    Life changing views presented in this book. Tim Keller does a great job presenting both sides of the story of the prodigal son or perhaps what I would consider three; the prodigal son himself, the jealousy of the older brother, and what both brothers cost the father.
