The Prodigal God Discussion Guide: Finding Your Place at the Table
Designed for use with The Prodigal God DVD by pastor and bestselling author Timothy Keller, The Prodigal God Discussion Guide helps churches and small groups plumb the powerful depths of Jesus' best-known parable to explore the story's characters -- the younger son, the elder son, and the Father whose lavish love exceeds what either son ever expected.
Two sons, one who kept the rules religiously and one who broke them all. One Father who loved both lost sons beyond anything they could imagine. Discover how deep and far God's grace goes in The Prodigal God.
The Prodigal God discussion guide will help you uncover, personalize, and apply life-changing insights from The Prodigal God DVD and book.
In six captivating sessions, pastor and New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller opens your eyes to the powerful message of Jesus' best-known -- and least understood -- parable. The Prodigal God is a revelation of the very heart of the gospel: God's radical love for sinners of every kind.
Taking you beyond the traditional focus on the wayward younger son, Keller helps you glean insights from each of the characters in Jesus' parable: the irreligious younger son, the moralistic elder son, and the Father who lavishes his love on both.
Inside this guide, you'll explore questions for group discussion and personal reflection, and exercises that will help you experience the truths of Jesus' parable in your own life.
The gospel is neither religion nor irreligion, but something else entirely. Whether you're a devout believer or a skeptic, The Prodigal God will challenge you to see Christianity in a whole new way.
