Prodigal God by Timothy Keller

Posted · 2 Comments

Fresh look at a familiar story. Younger, older brother both try own ways & fail. At center of all, a Father who loves lavishly, prodigally.

Sometimes it’s the simplest things that we need to be reminded about: Turning off the lights. Not leaving your bag behind. Why true salvation and fulfillment is only through God. In a story with only three characters, it does a rather complete job of describing us as people. There are the older brothers—those who try to find goodness by following a moral code, and the younger brothers—those who try to find goodness by following their own desires. Both fail. Goodness is only found in coming to God the heavenly father, and staying there.

Prodigal God by Timothy Keller is available at Amazon.co.uk for £4.90

    Have not read the book but will read as soon as I get my hands on it. However, I heard Tim Keller speak on the topic at this year’s Global Leadership Summit and it was eye opening. Talk is available as a part of the GLS DVD or MP3 CD here: http://www.willowcreek.org.uk/gls/nextsteps.html

    Hey thanks for the link. I had heard the book was based on a talk Keller gave but didn’t know much else about it.
