The Prodigal God (UK)- £8 each or 2x for £15 has a good deal on The Prodigal God by Tim Keller

"In The Prodigal God, New York pastor Timothy Keller uses the story of the Prodigal Son to shine a light on the central, beautiful message of Jesus: The gospel of grace, hope and salvation. Keller argues that the parable of the prodigal son, while Jesus' best-known parable, is also his least understood. He introduces the reader to all the characters in this timeless story, showing that it concerns not just a wayward son, but also a judgemental older brother and, most importantly, a loving father. This short but powerful book is a reminder to the faithful, an explanation to the seeker and finally an invitation to all - both older and younger brothers - to enter in to the 'unique, radical nature of the gospel': the reckless, spendthrift love of God."


  1. As an "older brother" I highly recommend this book. It simple and easy yet deep and insightful. I found it very penetrating.

  2. I got given a copy today. It wasn't bought through but rather from my friendly neighbourhood EMW bookshop.

    Think local people!

  3. Local village and global village... both/and I'd think.

  4. I like Sammy's style of bookshop.
    You go there and you don't buy a book, they give you one. I have never yet managed to bull that trick.
