This beautiful touching book answered many questions I didn't even know I had. Listening to it made me feel closer to God, very heart warming as if I can feel God's embrace with his arms over my shoulders. Thank you Keller for this beautiful book!
Absolutely! A whole new perspective of the older brother and how much like one of the brothers each of us are. The only true older brother is Jesus. He gives lovingly and unselfishly. Nothing was taken from him but everything was given out of love, mercy and abundant grace.
Excellent perspective and insight into this oft-heard parable. Dr. Keller has the incredible ability to enlighten even simple concepts so that the reader can have a deeper understanding of this famous passage.
The depth to which Keller takes the familiar story of the Prodigal Son. He brought so much to the story that I had never contemplated.
The competing world views of the older brother and the younger brother.
It's nice to hear the author read his own book

Yes, yearly. It reminds us well our Father's heart for us and the heart we're called to have for each other. It reminds us that we all have different temperaments and we're commanded to love one another with those different temperaments. Mostly, it reminds us that we have an elder brother who is true and truly love us, Jesus.
The father - he loves and is show as magnificent in that love.
His inflection and tone make areas where he wants to emphasize even more clear.
God's prodigal love for us knows no bounds.
Change of Heart!
Learning about the other two players in the story, the dad and brother! Very interesting interpretation - I am listening to it again and will listen to it at least one more time after that.
The equality of sin of the younger and older brother. Sin is sin.
Realizing I have been at some point in my life the younger and older brother.
