Item Description...
Overview
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.

Best Book  Feb 11, 2010
This is the best book I have read this year! Highly recommend this book. I have purchased this book also for others.
 
Supplement this book with Ken Bailey's "Finding the Lost Cultural Keys to Luke 15"  Dec 10, 2009
Finding the Lost: Cultural Keys to Luke 15 (Concordia Scholarship Today)


The study guide that you can buy for this book is actually fairly decent. It is full of excellent reflective questions and can be made more meaningful if you supplement the study guide with Ken Bailey's "Finding the Lost Cultural Keys to Luke 15."

The irony of MacArthur's book is that he uses the appendix to bash the Emigrant Church Movement and narrative theology, yet he himself is doing narrative theology when one considers the study guide that goes along with this book.

Many of the this site Reviewers would have some of their reservations about MacArthur's book answered by reading Ken Bailey's books on Luke 15. MacArthur uses Bailey as one of his sources but does not do justice to the more than 35 years of research Bailey has done as a New Testament scholar in the Middle East. Bailey thoughtfully and convincingly explains how the West has mistranslated several portions of Luke 15. This in turn has led to the Western Christian Church misinterpreting this sermon by Jesus - the Gospel within the Gospel.

I recommend that you read Bailey's "Finding the Lost Cultural Keys to Luke 15" and "Jacob and the Prodigal: How Jesus Retold Israel's Story." You will gain a much richer understanding of Jesus as a theologian and your faith will be strengthened.

MacArthur is guilty of oversimplification. He says that parables only have one meaning. This is an overreaction by Protestants to the use of allegorical interpretation. Jesus is saying much more than just God is concerned with saving the lost. Jesus lays out his theology on sin, freedom, repentance, grace, joy, fatherhood, sonship, Christology, family/community, atonement, and eschatology.

MacArthur's text is a watered-down version of Bailey's work and much of the richness of Luke 15 is missing.
