PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION
"Simply a stunning achievement. . . . Scholar and student alike will appreciate its admirable clarity and its numerous fresh suggestions. This wide-ranging book has no rival: it will be the book on the parables for the next decade and beyond."
Arland J. Hultgren
"Convinced that the parables are the most certain avenue for access to Jesus teaching, Klyne Snodgrass analyzes all of them with skill, care, and imagination. . . . No one has located the parables as clearly and forcefully within the prophetic tradition of Israel, thereby providing a new approach to their vitality."
"Bravo! Stories with Intent is the culmination of Klyne Snodgrasss lifetime of reflection on the parables. . . . Here is a book with intent, and it succeeds exceptionally well in opening up a key dimension of Jesus ministry and teaching."
Religious Studies Review
"A notable achievement . . . deserves a place on the shelf of every serious interpreter of the parables."
"This fresh look at Jesus parables is timely. Snodgrass has written a special book it is at once comprehensive, accessible, reliable, engaging, and very useful. . . . A rich resource indeed."
"An insightful and comprehensive treatment . . . certain to become a landmark study in parable research."
"Stories with Intent is Snodgrasss magnum opus, the product of thirty-five years of New Testament research and teaching. It is, as its subtitle claims, comprehensive."
Currents in Theology & Mission
"This is a rich resource for preaching and adult education. One will not exhaust its resources in a lifetime of parable study."
Journal of Theological Studies
"Probably few books that claim the description comprehensive live up to the accolade. Snodgrasss magnum opus on Jesus parables, however, is surely as close to an authoritative reference work on the parables as we shall see for years to come."
