Publisher's Description

Jesus's enigmatic and compelling parables have fascinated their hearers since he first uttered them, and during the intervening centuries these parables have produced a multitude of interpretations. This accessibly written book explores the varying interpretations of Jesus's parables across two millennia to demonstrate how powerfully they continue to challenge people's hearts, minds, and imaginations. It covers more than fifty imaginative receptions from different eras, perspectives, and media, showing how the use of Jesus's parables affects society and culture and offering a richer appreciation for Jesus's most striking teachings.
