Item description for Stories To Remember (Another Look at) by Ron Lavin...

Overview
Using the concept of the kingdom of God as a touchstone, Stories To Remember analyzes the parables and emphasizes how we can apply their lessons to our modern lives. Like Jesus, Lavin cuts through theological code words to get to the heart of their message in easy-to-understand ways. Structured in two eight-session groupings, Stories To Remember is an ideal group study resource. Each chapter includes "points to ponder" and questions for stimulating discussion. There's also a study guide for digging deeper into the biblical and historical background and tips to assist small group leaders. This is the second book in the Another Look series: other titles examine the Apostles' Creed, the Lord's Prayer, and the Ten Commandments. These books are excellent for personal inspiration, use with new member or adult Sunday school classes, small group studies, and sermon preparation.

Publishers Description
Ron Lavin writes, "The parables of Jesus pop our preconceptions and misconceptions, upset our equilibrium, and yet comfort us. They are wake-up calls -- each one is like a bucket of cold water thrown in our face." Indeed, the parables are some of the most intriguing and challenging passages in scripture because, Lavin tells us, they "invite us into a new world called the kingdom of God, where we live between the lightning (Jesus' first coming) and the thunder (Jesus' second coming)."
