Overview

In this brief and easy-to-read IVP booklet, C. Baxter Kruger vividly retells the parable of the prodigal son (including the full text of Luke 15:1-32). His fresh interpretation focuses not on the prodigal son, but on the character of the father as it is revealed through his interaction with his two very different sons. Baxter asks you to consider with which son you most identify--the dutiful elder brother or the wayward younger brother. Then he helps you explore the spiritual implications of that identification. Finally, he shows you how an examination of the father of the two sons highlights important aspects of God's character: rejoicing, compassion and more. You'll come away from this short but profound study with new insight into the ways God the Father is at work in your own life.

The Father heart of God is portrayed in such a loving way in this booklet. It reveals the "captive set free" by showing our Father as one who welcomes home the wayward son and also pours his blessings on the one who never left.
