The Parables

William Brosend

Nov/2006, 129 Pages, Paperback, 6 x 9

ISBN-13: 9780819221674



From the very beginning, human beings have loved to listen to stories. And Jesus loved to tell them. The parables are vivid, rich,arresting stories that make us think and teach us lessons about our relationship with God and others. From talents to mustard seeds, from shepherds to Samaritans, Jesus used common reference points to teach important truths.

But the parables are filled with ambiguity and room for interpretation. With historical and cultural background, and careful scholarly detail, this book helps readers explore their beauty, richness, and joy.

Includes discussion questions and activities. Chapters are organized by parable types such as seeking and growth.

William Brosend, who received his PhD from the University of Chicago, is an Episcopal priest and professor at the School of Theology at the University of The South in Sewanee, Tennessee. He lives in Sewanee, Tennessee.
