Greatest insight yet into the classic parable of Jesus.
Outstanding Interpretation!
A must-read, especially for anyone who truly wants to know the Loving God of the Bible.

This book made me see the story of the lost son (from the book of Luke in the Bible) in a new light. It seemed a little long at times (even though it is a short book!) but it is well worth the read for anyone who enjoys having their eyes opened to a new perspective on a story you may have thought you already knew everything about!
