    Lots of food for thought

    The unconventional approach to how we see the "parable of the prodigal son" is excellent and lots to chew on if you've never looked at a parable from the points of view of the various "players." I enjoyed it a lot. It'll preach.

    Short and sweet inspiration

    A few books have been written on the Prodigal Son story, such as with John MacArthur and Henri Nouwen. Timothy Keller¿s short but meaningful book is a nice addition to the canon. It does justice to the theme of God¿s love and grace, and what distinguishes Christianity from other religions. It¿s quite true that the Prodigal Son story can adequately sum up the theme of the entire Bible, and the Prodigal God indeed captures the heart of the Christian faith, pleasing to Christians and possibly to seekers.

    I give this book a good recommendation if you want to see the depth of God¿s grace and mercy, but at the same time see an important theme discussed through the older brother story, which is the danger of self-righteousness and empty piety, and this hinders many from coming to true faith.
