Item description for Laughter in Heaven: Understanding the Parables of Jesus by Earl F. Palmer...
The parables of Jesus are of untiring interest because they have the intriguing capacity to dole out their meaning here a little, there a little, new new insights revealed by changing times. Here, master Bible expositor Earl Palmer finds in them the truths awaiting our generation, and presents those truths with a gifted sense of illustration and application. Partly because their veiled nature, the parables never grow old. Far from what we sometimes hear, they are not little stories so simple that they can make truth transparent, so anyone can understand. Jesus used parables so that the truth will actually be hidden from those who had rather not see it in the first place (Matthew 13:11-15). But for those who long for the truth, it is there for the discovering.

Great Insight May 8, 2009
This is a tremndous book by a super author. I had read the first edition and was telling some friends about it. When I heard it had been reprinted, I bought three additional copies to give to my friends so that we could discuss it. The author has real insight in disscussing the scriptures. I have read most of his books. I like the study guide he provides in the back of the book. If you are interested in expository techings of the Bible, I highly recommend this book.
