THE PRODIGAL GOD Recovering the Heart of the Christian Faith

by | Read by Timothy Keller

Philosophy & Religion • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Keller's approachable treatise tackles the parable of the Prodigal Son as it relates to Christians, most especially those who have come to believe that the church is fraught with hypocrisy. He reinterprets the parable to show that the Christian church is made up of "younger brothers" (those who are wayward, stubborn, and unfaithful) and "elder brothers" (those who are haughty, jealous, and close-minded) as a way of understanding how the younger brothers become alienated from the elder-brother-run church community. Keller reads his own work with both patience and enthusiasm. He never sounds preachy—only excited that his reinterpretation has helped so many disillusioned Christians return to their faith. His reading makes the down-to-earth and straightforward text an informative and revelatory listen. A.H.A. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2009]
