Product Description

Kalas presents new insight into twelve of Jesus' parables by entering them through the "back side" - through the eyes of a minor or unsympathetic character. By approaching the stories in this way, Kalas releases new meaning and clarifies basic teachings.

Personal stories from the author's own experience and modern-day illustrations enrich the retellings even more. These refreshing glimpses from the back side will provide new food for thought for everyone - even those most familiar with Jesus' parables.
