Editorial Reviews

As parables aim to shock us out of our normal way of thinking into thinking like Christ, so too does Barbara Reid's Parables for Preachers send shock waves through our usual understanding of St. Mark. Her scholarly, comprehensive treatment reveals a rich world of biblical insights for homilists seeking greater depths in their homilies.

While this book reflects a wealth of scholarship (it has a very extensive bibliography), it is clearly written and accessible to the general reader.
