After having read it twice, my book of the year is “Prodigal God” by Tim Keller. It has been a long time since a book has made me think and reflect as deeply as this one has.
It is only 160 pages, but it is heavy. It has a lot of layers. Reading it a 2nd time, I gained so much more than after my initial reading.
I believe in it so much that I am having the EFC Newport staff read through it for our Monday am devotions. I am also interested in using it as a leadership development tool at the church.
It also helps if you watch Keller’s talk “Prodigal God” at the 2009 Willowcreek Leadership Summit. It is a great overview/summary of the book.
The question you need to answer is whether you are more like the younger brother or elder brother. Are you following the 3rd way?
