Reviews - What do customers think about Sharable Parables?
A gold mine of ideas Mar 1, 2007
I bought this book to use with our Children's Worship program. We have different volunteers teaching every week, some of them with very little teaching experience. So having material that is ready to teach is essential. This book has several creative ways to teach each of the parables. The instructions are detailed enough for those who are looking for a "cook book" to follow.
I was a bit disappointed that the suggestions are divided into ones to use with a younger group and other suggestions to use with an older group - I was looking for material to use with ages 4 through 11. But the lessons geared to the younger group worked well with this broad age range. I think the suggestions for the older group could be used with teenagers, too.
I appreciated the fresh storytelling approaches, and coverage of some of the less popular parables. I was also very happy with the interpretation of Jesus's message in each of the parables and they way the ideas bring out the lessons in addition to making them interesting and enjoyable.
Excellent resource Feb 1, 2006
If you're looking for solid, Bible-based, yet FUN Children's messages this is the book. As Pastor of a mutigenerational church I love its adaptability for so many ages, and I hope there's a "Volume II" in the works!
