Publisher's Description

Jesus’ parables can turn your life upside down . . . on purpose. Stories of whiny workers, a roadside rescue, a shocking servant, bewildered bridesmaids. From the first to the twenty-first century, people have heard Jesus' words and had their directions reversed, perspectives altered, and lives inverted.

Unusual twists. Unexpected endings. Woven into the fabric of every narrative are pearls of wisdom waiting to be discovered—and lived out. So forget what you think you know. Find out what Jesus really said. And brace yourself— you’re about to be inverted!

 
Each of the eight chapters:
• Focuses on the unusual twists and unexpected ending of one of Jesus’ extraordinary parables
• Gives insight into what Jesus really said
• Challenges readers to reflect Jesus’ unique perspective
• Concludes with "Didn’t See That Coming" questions to challenge individuals or small groups to change—their attitudes, their relationships, maybe even the ground they walk on

    I originally bought this book for myself to get a deeper understanding of Jesus' stories. This book does not disappoint. It is an easy read, nicely written & associates the parables to how we can apply them in our every day lives. At the end of each chapter are thoughtful questions to enhance your readings. This book was such a hit with me, that I bought more to give to members of our new weekDAY bible study group! This book is a wonderful group study tool we use along with the leader's 'Inverted - Group Member Discussion Guide'. My one disappointment is that the book only covers 8 of Jesus' parables...I wish there were more!
