  “A fascinating story, and the only one like it. Jake Winston is truly Jake the Prodigal Son, and his story is one filled with humor and humility, faith and folly. The conclusion is sure to leave any reader benevolent and serene.” - B. J. Salter. From the PublisherBrand: , Inc. Book Reviews; Lessons in Love from the Prodigal Son's Father.

If you pay attention to the details of this story and ponder it seriously, you will disagree with its traditional title being “the Prodigal Son” because this story is about “the Prodigal Father,” a father who is so extravagant with his love and grace.

The Prodigal God looks at the Parable of the Prodigal Son as a parable about the lostness of both brothers and the heart of God the Father that is revealed towards them both. Keller shows clearly that the parable is a powerful challenge to self-righteous, religious moralists.
