Where is the cross in the parable of the prodigal son?
For centuries, Muslims have used the Father’s forgiveness to question the need for a mediator between humanity and God. Kenneth Bailey presents from a Middle Eastern prospective and, in doing so, powerfully demonstrates its essentially Christian message. This revised edition of Bailey’s classic, groundbreaking work now includes a new introduction and is updated throughout. In it he highlights the underlying tensions between law and love, servant hood and sonship, honour and forgiveness that grant this story such timeless spiritual and theological power.
