Why did Jesus use parables, and how do we unravel them to discover their timeless and powerful messages? Jesus' parables proclaim the good news, they show us the Kingdom of God, they show us God's unconditional love for us all, and they convey a central truth. Parables even surprise us! They slip up on us and flip our values. They turn our world upside down. And the great thing about the parables of Jesus is that they are always relevant and always personal; they speak eloquently to you and me, here and now.
In this book, we will examine six of Jesus' thought-provoking parables, parables of grace, to see if we can find yourself and God's truth for us in these magnificent "truth stories." They are, after all, truth-stories from the mind of Jesus that can change our lives as they proclaim Gods truth for you and me. (This description was adapted from the Introduction)
