Excellent Oct 22, 2006
To my relief this book had no doctrinal errors in it that I could find and it was explained well with nothing that I found hard to understand. The language was basic and without pretentious wording. Although I personally did not learn anything new, this book will certainly help those who truly want to understand certain parables Jesus taught like the one about the good Samaritan or the praying pharisee and the tax collector.
