As our life experiences accumulate, we bring a fresh eye to the Scriptures. This is especially true of the parables, as they deal with people and life and everyday events. In many ways, reflecting on the parables in light of our own lives can bring us closer to Jesus.
Whether you are encountering these parables for the first time or for the first time again, you will find them leading you into the mind and spirit of Jesus and offering lessons for living in the kingdom of God.

Dian Long5 Stars Out Of 5May 10, 2008Dian LongI ordered this book to read and offered to lead a book / Bible study on it when our pastor requested a volunteer. We really enjoyed and learned a lot from the book. He provided back ground on traditions and made us look at the scriptures in a very differed way.
