Full Product Description

  • The Prodigal Prophet gives you ways of listening to God's heart for the people around you

You already know the story. There is a cantankerous and stubborn prophet, a storm, and a fish big enough to swallow a man whole: especially a stubborn and cantankerous one. Then the prophet is spat out and is no longer as stubborn.

The story of Jonah is one of the most famous in all of the Bible.

It is also one of the most misunderstood.

In The Prodigal Prophet, the New York Times bestselling author Tim Keller tells the hidden story of Jonah in the way to most everybody else misses out. In it, Tim Kellow shows just how bad a prophet Jonah is. So bad, in fact, that we often chose to overlook the very point of the story and focus on the fish and the storm and running away. What we don’t see is that the story of Jonah isn’t as unique as it seems. There is another story like his. One that opens up a whole new way of reading Jonah's story:

The parable of the Prodigal Son.

The connection between Jonah, Jesus, and the prodigal son open up a whole host of questions to be answered. It also helps finish off the story of Jonah that is left at a cliffhanger with Jonah still in mid-argument with God.

Providing new understandings and answers to the story of the prodigal prophet, Tim Keller explores how we often run from what God wants for us, and how to come back.

The Prodigal Prophet by Timothy Keller was published by Hodder & Stoughton in November 2018 and is our 934th best seller. The ISBN for The Prodigal Prophet is 9781473690509.

Publisher's Description

Most people, even those who are nonreligious, are familiar with the book of Jonah: a rebellious prophet defies God and is swallowed by a whale. Less familiar to most people is the second half of this Biblical story--what happens after Jonah is released from the belly of the fish. Yet it is in this second half of the story that one of the most powerful and important lessons of the Bible is hidden.

The famous story shows how, if we would understand the mercy of God, it will always take us in directions we would rather not go, toward people we would rather not care about, and ultimately into the deepest counsels of God. In a time of growing division, The Prodigal Prophet shows us God's love among people, and how Christians must listen to God's call even when it takes them to uncomfortable places.
