Samenvatting

Long before there were printing presses, copy machines, and email, societies used storytelling to convey beliefs, history, and traditions. This practice preceded the ministry of Jesus and continues today in many cultures. But Jesus was a master of storytelling. His words provide many with guidelines and a road map for living. Using familiar imagery found in nature and other recognizable sources, he engaged his listeners with lessons that confronted every aspect of their lives, providing the tools for self-examination and change. Speaking in parables, however, sometimes caused confusion for his listeners, and readers today may wonder what exactly he meant, and how his words apply to everyday life. This book looks at each of Jesus's parables, explaining the key points, the central themes, and the meanings we can take away from the stories. By considering each parable in depth, the author helps readers come to a better understanding of the teachings of Jesus and what they mean for our lives.

Recensie(s)

Covert has written an excellent introduction to the parables used by Jesus as recorded in the New Testament....The book is valuable because many of the images used by Jesus are no longer familiar to our modern, urban cutlure. This book explains the key points--the central themes--and provides fine historical and cultural background....[A]n excellent addition to all ibrary collections used by readers looking for spiritual meaning from the Bible. - Catholic Library World
