THE PRODIGAL GOD, by Timothy Keller
The Sermon/Small Group study series starting Feb. 18, 2018
In this six-session study, pastor and bestselling author Timothy Keller uses one of Jesus’ best-loved parables – the Prodigal Son – to illustrate the depth of God’s love and how his grace extends into some very unexpected places.
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 both the devout and skeptic to see Christianity in a whole new way. To see the essential message of Jesus, locked inside this most familiar parable to reveal a message of hope and salvation.
The series will start on Sunday, February 18 and continue for 6 weeks, through Lent. Check the Small Group table to sign up for a small group or contact Joyce Clinger at 419-294-1535.
