I think people are on the right track when they call Timothy Keller "the next C.S. Lewis". The Prodigal God was excellent, and it definitely brought to light some things in the parable commonly called "The Prodigal Son" that I had never considered. This book also reinforced some exciting aspects of the gospel and God's grace that, yes, I knew but the way they were presented was so exciting. It made me think about them anew and I look forward to recommending this book to new believers as well as life-long Christians. I haven't been so excited about a book like this since I first read Mere Christianity. I think I'll go back in my Kindle edition and highlight some quotes!
