  • The Parable Of The Prodigal Son

    The original story of the prodigal son is very touching but is written as all bible stories are written and that is to put anyone to sleep. However, Garrison Keillor's version of the prodigal son makes the same point and is fun to read. He brought it in to a more modern day setting but the same message is sent like the original story. The story of the prodigal son is that he wanted his father to give him everything that he would inherit when the father passed on. His father agreed and he left...
