Item description for Speaking in Parables: A Study in Metaphor and Theology by Sallie McFague...

Too many times theology becomes abstract and systematic, and therefore is not effective at spreading the gospel. For McFague, Jesus' parables and the stories, poems, and confessions of many early Christians should be our models of how to spread the good news. By examining common writing traditions, McFague shows how the Great Commission can be better served.
