The Prayer of Jabezused a little-known story of the Bible to redefine success for Christians. The Prodigal God uses a famous story of the Bible to redefine nothing less than the central Christian message for believers and skeptics alike. Newsweekcalled 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. The Prodigal Son is the most well-known parable in the Bible. Incredibly, it is also almost universally misunderstood. Taking his trademark intellectual approach to understanding Christianity, Keller uncovers the essential message of Jesus, hidden in plain sight for centuries. Within this parable is the lost message of Jesuswhere he outlines just how his followers are supposed to love and accept one another so they can join him in Heaven. With this book, both the devout and skeptics will see Christianity in a whole new way.

Timothy J. Keller was born in 1950. He received a B.A. from Bucknell University in 1972, a M.Div. from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in 1975, and a D.Min. from Westminster Theological Seminary in 1981. He was ordained by the Presbyterian Church in America and served as a pastor in Virginia for nine years. He is founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, New York. He has written several books including Grace Changes Everything, Generous Justice: How God's Grace Makes Us Just, and The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism, which won awards from World Magazine and Christianity Today.
