“In his story of the prodigal son Jesus confronts the Pharisees and religious legalists of every generation with a stunning vision of his Father. Far from being a bean-counting legalist who is interested only in how we measure up to his rules, Jesus reveals God to be a Father who passionately loves his children forever. Its about relationship, not law, knowing the Father’s heart, not keeping an abstract ledger. The legalists could not be more wrong, and Jesus tells the story of the father and his two sons as an in-your-face attack on the god of Pharisees’ and our fallen imaginations, that we may know his Father with him and life in his embrace.” C. Baxter Kruger
This book is a veritable laser beam cutting through the haze of religious confusion.

You will come to see your self and your life as you have never seen them. Simple. Clear. Astonishing. This book should be required reading for every person in the Western World.
Building on Jesus’ story of a father and his two sons, Dr. Kruger’s first—and now internationally best-selling—book is a short and powerful picture of the shocking truth about God. Far from being a bookkeeping legalist, who watches us like a hawk to see if we keep His rules, the Father Jesus reveals is a passionate Father who loves us forever, and desires nothing from us except that we know His acceptance and delight and live in their freedom. Loved around the world and used by pastors, therapists and recovery groups everywhere, this little book brings you face to face with the Father heart of God. It is simple, direct and fearlessly beautiful.
Home is among the most evocative and haunting words in our language. Like any other word, it is simply an arrangement of consonants and vowels, yet it possesses the uncanny capacity to speak volumes to us and an almost magical ability to touch our souls. Why is this? What is it about this word? Why does it seem to have such a special ability to touch us so deeply?
Jesus and the Undoing of Adam is straight from the heart of St. Athanasius and the early Church. In this relatively short but powerful book, Dr. Kruger takes us behind Augustine to rethink the work of Jesus Christ in the light of the doctrine of the Trinity. Dr. Kruger sets forward a stunning vision of the Triune God and articulates a view of Christ’s incarnate life, death, resurrection and ascension that is rigorously consistent with the truth that the Triune God eternally purposed our adoption in Jesus Christ.
Drawing on twenty years of medical and counseling experience, Dr. Bruce Wauchope of Australia takes us inside our own fallen minds and shows us how Jesus brings real healing to our damaged souls. Far from being a mere lecture, Bruce’s style is more a form of theological and pastoral prayer.
The original lectures delivered before the book. Dr. Kruger charts a course from the beautiful Trinitarian life of God to the incarnation of the Son and the union of humanity with the Triune God in Jesus Christ. In the light of the relationship Jesus has established between the life he lives with his Father and Spirit and the human race, Baxter interprets our human existence here and now and nothing short of our participation in the Trinitarian life itself.
“God is not a ‘scarecrow in a melon patch.’ Nor is he like Scrooge, who found it natural to spoil all Christmas festivities. Rather God is, in Baxter Kruger’s inimitable joyous presentation, ‘the God of the great dance.’ For Dr. Kruger gives us a vision of the Christian life that is powerful, winsome, hospitable, intimate, and oh so relevant and personal to the desires of the human heart with its eternal longings.”
