We’ll study The Prodigal God: Recovering the Heart of the Christian Faith by Rev. Timothy Keller. This book lays out the essentials of the Christian message, the gospel. It is for both curious outsiders and established insiders. Keller draws upon the familiar Parable of the Prodigal Son in Luke chapter 15 to unlock the “secret heart of Christianity.” The dictionarydefinition of prodigal is “reckless spendthrift,” to spend until you have nothing left. Jesus is showing us the God of Great Expenditure, who is nothing if not prodigal toward us, his children. Who are you in this story – the younger son or the elder son? This study will help you see who you are and who you want to be.
The book is available from most on-line book sellers and for Kindle.
