Book Description :

During his many years in the Middle East, Kenneth Bailey often lived in villages, thus experiencing peasant life first hand. In getting to know the local people, his understanding of the original meaning of the parables of Christ was greatly enriched. In The Cross and the Prodigal, Kenneth Bailey draws on these insights to bring out not only the literary meaning of the Parable of the Prodigal Son, but also its emotional impact on the original hearers.In the one-act play, 'Two Sons Have I Not', contained in the second part of the book, the author brings into the open the parable's underlying conflicts: Law versus love, servanthood versus sonship, preservation of family honour versus restoration of family fellowship. These conflicts are brought to a climax in the banquet scene that ends the parable.With this reprint, the author's insights into the Parable of the Prodigal Son are made available to a new generation. Kenneth Bailey's writings on the parables of Jesus continue to be brilliantly illuminating.

Book Description :

Luke’s gospel contains a number of passages about compassion. One of the most beloved of these is commonly known as the parable of the Prodigal Son. In The Prodigal Father, Angelo Scarano focuses on the distinctive role of the father in the parable, the example he provides of being transformed by a compassionate heart, and the joy in celebrating the return of what was loved and thought to be lost. Scarano suggests that this remarkable parable has two climaxes—the banquet for the younger son, and the conversation between the father and the elder son—and that it is in this second climax where the real intention of the evangelist is revealed. Scarano urges readers to accept God’s “compassionate heart,” to allow God’s Spirit to transform us and enable us to live like the prodigal father, opening our hearts to the weak and the strong, the broken and the bitter. Scarano’s insightful work will be welcomed by preachers, teachers, and anyone engaged in prayer with or reflection upon the gospels.

Offers a compelling and creative vision for North American Christians Puts forth a theology and ten critical signposts that must be observed to follow a missional way of life: post-Christendom, missio Dei, incarnation, witness, scripture, gospel, church, sexuality, justice, pluralism Asks questions and points to issues that trouble many leaders in the post-modern, post-denominational, post-Christendom church This book can fill the gap for the average Christian left discontented with the current options "after evangelicalism."

Book Description :

In today's world, relationships and lives are destroyed by conflict, greed, deception, betrayal, abandonment, abuse and other cruel acts of violence. Stories of Ponzi schemes, unethical financial dealings, infidelity, gang violence and terrorism are common place in the news. Such acts result in financial ruin, divorce, physical pain, emotional trauma and even death of loved ones. Our first instinct is to pay back evil for evil and take our own revenge. Yet is that the best course? This book explores and examines some tough questions, including: [ Is it possible to recover from the loss, grief and trauma resulting from an injustice? [ Will post-traumatic stress plague a victim of violence forever? [ How can relationships be restored after betrayal or adultery? [ Is it possible to forgive someone who has cruelly or violently injured us? [ Can we actually "love our enemies" as instructed in the Bible? [ Can we get forgiveness from God after committing violence, infidelity or murder? [ Is there a key to personal healing, no matter what someone has experienced? The good news is there is a key to personal healing and a way to recover from the losses, grief and traumas of life. And it's called forgiveness. The Parable System of Forgiveness and Reconciliation provides a practical, proven method of forgiving anyone for any type of injustice. It also describes how to restore and reconcile broken relationships. This invaluable resource will help you do one of the hardest things you'll ever do for your own personal healing: forgive someone who has betrayed, abused, violated, or committed a violent offense against you or a loved one.

Book Description :

The Prodigal Son leaves home and squanders his inheritance in riotous living. His elder brother stays home and works hard. When the prodigal returns and is restored to his father, the elder brother becomes petty, jealous, bitter, and resentful. Despite their different paths into carnality, their sins cannot remove them from the circumstances of their birth. Once a son, always a son! As a “born again” believer, whether you sin like the prodigal or like the elder brother, you remain a permanent member of the family of God, but you lose your temporal fellowship with God. To remedy this rift, God has provided a simple, grace procedure—rebound—so that your postsalvation sins are forgiven and you can recover fellowship and move on in the Christian life. Jesus taught the parable of the prodigal son to an audience of self-righteous legalists who reviled the profligate prodigal and praised the holier-than-thou elder brother. Yet, they entirely missed the message! Everyone who believes in Christ by faith alone is a permanent son of God. Once a family member, any believer can reclaim his Christian life from carnality and be restored to fellowship with God. For more information, visit rbthieme.org

Book Description :

The Christian faith is about grace, not law, yet the evangelical church gets it wrong. Gerard Kelly uses the story of the Prodigal Son to unpack the idea, explaining as he does so why he is still willing to describe himself as part of the tribe. This book explores in depth the story of the Prodigal Son in Luke 15, suggesting that this one story carries in concentrated form the DNA of the message of Jesus. Exploring this parable and the wider biblical story arc in which it is set, The Prodigal Evangelical suggests a reframing of the gospel narrative in four key words: beauty, brokenness, forgiveness and invitation. These four words describe the human condition ' we are beautiful, broken, forgiven and invited ' and create a telling of the Christian story that centres on the breadth and depth of the love of God. This is the narrative at the heart of evangelical faith. The Prodigal Evangelical embraces the death of Christ as essentially about forgiveness. The cross is where it becomes possible both to be forgiven and to forgive: this is the game-changing force that creates the Christian movement. In both dimensions the forgiveness offered is unilateral. The Prodigal Evangelical leads directly to Gerard's personal experience of the cross as a life-changing encounter.

Book Description :

When his oldest son was born, Tom had stopped drinking completely. Now with two children and his wife, he had closed the chapter on that part of his story. Life was never simple or easy for Tom, but he had all he needed to get him through it. Until he didn’t. In the blink of an eye, he lost the person he loved more than anything... the one thing that always made him a better man, and his reason for everything that he did in life. His wife and soulmate, Emily. Along with her went his faith in a caring God. The pain of losing Emily was too much to bear, and he found himself consumed by more darkness than he could handle on his own. He became unrecognizable as a father and a man, and each day continued down a path that there was no coming back from, or so he thought. Even though Tom believed God had truly abandoned him and there was no way to make it Home, Tom learned that we are never alone and there is nothing God cannot do. In an amazing and emotional story of hope, heartbreak and redemption, Tom’s story shows us that there is always a way back Home and nobody is ever past saving...
