The Prodigal God
The Prodigal God is a six-week experience for churches and small groups. Based on Jesus’ Parable of the Prodigal Son, this book, teaching film, and discussion guide from New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller illustrate his core message: that the gospel is neither religion nor irreligion, neither morality nor immorality, but something else entirely. Both younger brothers and elder brothers in your church will realize that the only way home is through a prodigal God.

There is more than one way to run away from God and defy him. But there is only one way back: God is so prodigal in his grace that he reaches out to humble and restore and receive both. Few books unpack this theme with greater force than this slim volume from Tim Keller.
– D. A. Carson, professor at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
The Prodigal God is vintage Keller – biblically faithful with a fresh angularity. That is, Keller seizes a great truth and comes at it from an angle and with language that help us see it in new ways.
– John Piper, Pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church
The insight that Tim Keller has about the two individuals in the story and the heart of the God who loves them both… it is not much of an overstatement to say I read that and God wrecked me afresh.
– Bill Hybels, Pastor of Willow Creek Community Church
Religious people will find—perhaps for the first time—insights into themselves and the love of God that just might shatter any outward shell of mere religiosity on which they are depending and draw them into the presence of real light, glory, and salvation—into the presence of Jesus Christ, the Prodigal God Himself.
– Chuck Colson, Founder, Prison Fellowship
