Product Description

Discover new insights about the passion story through the lenses of Jesus' parables.

"Parables nudge us all to receptive insight," writes Indermark. "For those new to the Lenten journey, they give access to the holy through the ordinary. For those who have navigated this season many times, they allow an opportunity to experience Lent from a different perspective.... [Parables] take us deeper, revealing the approaching realm of the God who has come to us in One who teaches still in parables."

Lent offers a time to reflect on how we live compared with God's expectations. Our best example is to study how Jesus lived and taught in the presence of God.

Through Parables and Passion you'll reflect on one parable each day of the season, one thematic chapter per week. The Prologue offers a reading for Ash Wednesday while the Epilogue provides readings for the final days of Holy Week. An included Leader's Guide outlines a six-week study.

Open your eyes and spirit to the sacred in the ordinary moments and people of your life. As the parables prove, when we fail to see the holy in life, we may lose sight of the sacredness of life. What better lesson to reinforce during the Lenten season!

John Indermark, a graduate of Eden Theological Seminary, is ordained in the United Church of Christ. He served as a parish pastor for 16 years before developing a ministry of writing that is now his full-time vocation.

    After reading a sample I ordered two copies; one to read and one for a friend. The depth of thought is remarkable, and causes great introspection. It is ideal for a Lenten study, but it is also a great study anytime.

    While I have not fully completed this book, as it was purchased for a Lent Study Guide. It is very insightful and helpful as I go through this Lent season. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a disciplined study guide, for anytime throughout the year!
