A TALE OF TWO SONS – John MacArthur (2008)

A Tale of Two Sons by John MacArthur is a rich retelling of one of Jesus’ most popular parables – the parable of the prodigal son.  MacArthur unpacks this powerful parable with typical skill.

Details of the parable are explained.  Misconceptions are cleared.  The horror of sin exposed.  The hypocrisy of the Pharisees’ is revealed. The drama of redemption is celebrated. And the primary aim is articulated, namely – that sinners (both prodigals and elder brothers) would turn to Christ for forgiveness by grace alone through faith alone.
