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.
Timothy Keller was born and raised in Pennsylvania and educated at Bucknell University, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Westminster Theological Seminary. His first pastorate was in Hopewell, Virginia. In 1989 he started Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City with his wife, Kathy, and their three sons. Today, Redeemer has nearly six thousand regular Sunday attendees and has helped to start more than three hundred new churches around the world. He is the author of The Songs of Jesus, Prayer, Encounters with Jesus, Walking with God Through Pain and Suffering, Every Good Endeavor, and The Meaning of Marriage, among others, including the perennial bestsellers The Reason for God 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, exploreall 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
MemeAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great read!August 16, 2016MemeAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the first book I've read of Timothy Keller's; I'm hooked! This is one of the best books I have ever read in years. Like most people, I have read the story of the prodigal son numerous times but have never looked at it the way this book encouraged me to. It's an easy read; won't take more than a day. I liked it so much, I'm ordering two more of his books. I love the way he writes and his thought process. Highly recommended book and writer!

MindyCary, NCAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5The Prodigal God--1 of the best books ever!February 9, 2016MindyCary, NCAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book has been called 1 of the 40 best Christian books to read in a lifetime. Keller's methodical and fascinating writing on the last part of the 3-part parable of Luke 15 gets an A+ in my mind and heart. Knowing that the father in the story had TWO lost sons it is easier to see ourselves in this story. I have taught this 3 times to groups and am embarking on a summarized few lessons to go through it. By all means acquire the 35-minute teaching DVD that goes along with the book. You will hit a home run reading this book or sharing it with others.
JRA5 Stars Out Of 5Keller revistedFebruary 25, 2015JRAQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5With the purchase of 12 books for a leadership team I oversee, I am on my 4th time through this simple but amazing book. "God's amazing, unearned, unmerited grace" is a concept that is given new understanding and new life in Keller's short expose of the Biblical account of the "Prodigal Son," which Keller more aptly explains is a tale of two sons. A must read for both students of the Bible and those looking into the faith.
