Publishers Description

From the very beginning, human beings have loved to listen to stories. And Jesus loved to tell them. The parables are vivid, rich, arresting stories that make us think and teach us lessons about our relationship with God and others. From talents to mustard seeds, from shepherds to Samaritans, Jesus used common reference points to teach important truths.

But the parables are filled with ambiguity and room for interpretation. With historical and cultural background, and careful scholarly detail, this book helps readers explore their beauty, richness, and joy.

Includes discussion questions and activities. Chapters are organized by parable types such as seeking and growth. "

Reviews - What do customers think about Conversations With Scripture: The Parables (Anglican Association of Biblical Scholars Study Series)?

accessible and enjoyable  Jul 30, 2008
Only 108 pages long with a brief study guide in the back, this book impressed me with its accessibility. The author makes a point of keeping it real and avoiding the all too common error that academics often make of intellectual braggadocia, as in "look how smart I am." Does that drive you as nuts as it does me? I was drawn by the author's humility and also his obvious vast knowledge.

This is possibly the most "interesting" book I've ever read on the parables. I found it easy to follow and not only relevant, but it also introduced me to some refreshingly new insights into some overly familiar parables. This book is well worth the investment and gives an enormous amount of information in a very small number of pages.

As an Episcopal priest, I highly recommend it to those like me, whose pastoral duties don't always give them the time they'd like to study dense or thick volumes of scriptural commentary, much as I enjoy that. This book far exceeded my expectations in the quality of information and insights it provides.
