The Outrageous Love of God


The story of the prodigal son is regarded by most as the greatest srory Jesus ever told. I would add the proviso of my own conviction-that Luke 15, the entire chapter of lost things, though seemingly made of four stories (sheep, silver coin, prodigal son and elder brother), is actually one story in which each segment of the story adds a significant and indispensable part of the whole. The last chapter in this small book is an attempt to view the parts and their integration into the whole message Jesus presented in this brilliant parable.
