What is God like? In a world confused about God's essential character, where can seekers turn to discover his identity? The parables of Jesus reveal aspects of God's nature, according to Lloyd Ogilvie, renowned former chaplain of the U.S. Senate. In taking to heart these "earthly stories with a heavenly meaning," we get to know God revealed in his son, Jesus, and discover and do his will. Ogilvie guides readers through 29 of Jesus' stories, and shows what each one reveals about who God is and who we are meant to be. Throughout, Ogilvie's warm, accessible voice invites believers and nonbelievers alike to get acquainted with God and begin to experience His extravagant love for each and every person.
Lloyd John Ogilvie served as chaplain to the U.S. Senate from 1995 to 2003, after serving as a pastor for forty years. As president of Leadership Unlimited, Dr. Ogilvie continues to be a sought-after speaker for business and professional conferences, clergy meetings, and churches. He presents Preaching with Passion conferences in partnership with Fuller Theological Seminary's Lloyd John Ogilvie Institute.
