Product Description

Stories with Intent offers pastors and students an accessible and comprehensive guide to Jesus' parables. Klyne Snodgrass explores in vivid detail the contexts in which these stories were told, the purposes they had in Jesus' message, and the ways they have been interpreted by the church and modern scholarship. While holding a consciously evangelical approach, Snodgrass deals throughout with a broad spectrum of opinions and interpretations.

He begins by surveying the primary issues in parables interpretation. Offering both a new, more functional classification system for parables and guidelines for interpreting parables, he provides an overview of other parables, often neglected in the discussion, from the Old Testament, Jewish writings, and the Greco-Roman world. The remaining chapters group the longer and more important parables of Jesus thematically and give a comprehensive treatment of each, including background and significance for modern thought.

Klyne R. Snodgrass is Paul W. Brandel Professor of New Testament Studies at North Park Theological Seminary, Chicago, Illinois. His previous writing includes The Parable of the Wicked Tenants and Between Two Truths: Living with Biblical Tensions.
