The Prodigal God
Just about everyone is familiar with the story of the prodigal son, perhaps the most well-known parable of Jesus. Many have found comfort in its moral of the free forgiveness available to repentant prodigals, who have consumed their lives with dissipate living. But is that the whole point of the story? Keller would argue that Jesus' parable is more properly the tale of two lost sons, and the prodigal grace of a loving father, who is willing to invite both the infamous younger son and the self-righteous elder brother to his feast of joy. And when the story is understood that way, it just might change one's whole perception of true Christianity.
Our Westloop Pastors studied Dr. Timothy Keller's book, "The Prodigal God: Recovering the Heart of the Christian Faith" in 2009. These are a series of lectures written by our Pastors. We hope the messages provides each of you new insights to our Prodigal God.
