    This book does not delve deeply into the parables but it provides great insight and basic information about each parable. I would definitely recommend this book, but would suggest if you want a really detailed and deep book, to choose a different one. But excellent!

    The book is excellent and I've enjoyed reading and teaching from it. The value was good, but the delivery was a little slower than expected.

    I have not had the time as of this thus far to read a large number of the Parables. But I always wanted a book explaining this important subject regarding what Jesus was really saying in his parables. Some are apparent others more complex. I have many christian books explaining various topics such as Escatology. At this time the Parables I have read about are explained in detail and seem to be done very well. The examples have given me a better understanding of Jesus messages to us as Christians who desire to live a more spiritual life. As a retired engineer as a telephone switching systems and computer systems analyst, I love to understand things as accurately as possible. All in all, so far a great addition to my Bible study library. Buy it, you will enjoy it, and learn more about ous Savior and his principles and how to live your new life as a Christian!

    This is an excellent treatment on the parables of Jesus. Kistemaker's descriptions and explainations open the imagination to give the reader "ears to hear," with cultural and historical reference to each parable.I also appreciate that the NIV text for each parable is included. William Barclay's "The Parables of Jesus," is another very good companion book to Kistemaker's, but Barclay only provides the Scripture references. Having the text of the parable in the book makes it much easier to sit in an easy chair and not have to fumble around with both book and Bible - even though one is compelled to do so to look up the excellent footnoted references.And the footnotes are also an excellent source for other reading material - although most of the bibliography cited in Kistemaker's book is currently out of print. Thankfully, there's ebay to find those hard to find out of print texts, huh?
