In The Tale of Two Sons Workbook, one of America's greatest Bible teachers takes readers deeper into Luke 15 than they've ever been before, revealing insights into the culture of Jesus' day and a surprise secret ending.

The Parable of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32) has been preached in every pulpit and is known by many who read and cherish the Bible. It's so special because it presents in clear and inspiring terms our struggle with sin, the need of our hearts to be accepted and pursued, and the Father's inexhaustible mercy and love. But most Christians would say that they've heard every sermon possible from this gem of scripture. That it has lost its luster. In The Tale of Two Sons, one of America's most beloved pastors restores the brilliance of this passage for the layperson, giving engrossing historical background and a surprise ending readers may have never known.

It is hard for me to imagine there being a better exposition of the parable of the Prodigal Son than this one. John MacArthur delivers a truly edifying, Christ-exalting, gospel-centered masterpiece as he minutely examines this famous parable from the perspectives of each of the main characters -- the father, the younger son, and the older brother. The joy in heaven over God's grace in saving sinners is set in contrast with the tragic self-righteous hypocrisy of the Pharisees and their hatred of God's way of salvation by grace through faith in Christ. MacArthur misses nothing and communicates his powerful message in his usual clear crisp style. This is, by far, much better than Tim Keller's Prodigal God.read more
