Reviews - What do customers think about Complete Guide To The Parables?
Not quite complete, but completely worthwhile Apr 24, 2006
The title doesn't quite fit the book - this is a collection of sermons. Kendall, a terrific preacher, focuses on application in this nearly complete collection of messages about 33 of Jesus' parables. The subtitle ("Understanding and Applying the Stories of Jesus") is really this book's reason for being.
And in that, Kendall succeeds admirably. You won't be able to walk away from this volume and see these stories in the same way again. Just as Jesus' stories were both easily understandable and completely baffling to almost all of His first-century hearers, you'll find that Dr. Kendall's exposition amplifies both of these experiences for you. You'll understand these stories more clearly - and be challenged and convicted by his eminently practical applications.
I occasionally referred to this book in the latter stages of writing my first book on the parables (Parablelife: Living the stories Jesus told in real time - FaithWalk Publishers, 2005 - available here on this site) and came back to it again and again while writing the sequel (Uprooted: Growing a Parablelife from the Inside Out, scheduled for release by FaithWalk in late 2006). Dr. Kendall's book helped me to focus on the message of the parables in ways that only great preaching can do. I'm grateful for access to these messages.
