Book Review: The Parables of Jesus by James Montgomery Boice


From the Back Cover

Some sections of the Bible give us grand theology. Some move us to grateful responses to God. The parables ask us if there has been any real difference in our lives. —James Montgomery Boice

The Parables of Jesus offers a scholarly yet simple explanation of all of Jesus’ parables. Boice captures the enduring message of each one and pastorally guides us in to a proper response.

About the Author

JAMES MONTGOMERY BOICE (1938-2000) (A.B., Harvard University; B.D., Princeton Theological Seminary; D.Th., University of Basel, Switzerland; D.D., Theological Seminary of the Reformed Episcopal Church) was speaker on the worldwide radio ministry of the Bible Study Hour and pastor of historic Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia. His titles include Jesus on Trial and The Doctrines of Grace. He was married to Linda Ann Boice, who continues to teach at the high school they co-founded.


My Review:
The Parables of Jesus by James Montgomery Boice pulls the reader into a study of the parables that Jesus taught in such a depth that I have never seen in a book. The author separates the book into six sections: Parables of the Kingdom, Parables of Salvation, Parables of Wisdom and Folly, Parables of the Christian Life, Parables of Judgement and the Notes/Index section. Each section has four to five parables. Each parable is well explained in both ancient Jewish and modern aspects.
I like the feel of the cover and the paper thickness. The Parables of Jesus by James Montgomery Boice was well edited and the format flows nicely.

I suggest this book to anyone who wants to learn about the Parables of Jesus or how God speaks and teaches in general.

Im a stay at home, homeschooling mom of six awesome kids. But for fun on the side like doodles in the margin, I like to sew, edit books, design websites, make homeschool resources, study Biblical dream interpretation, decorate cakes, and make pinatas along with many other things including graphic design. I love books and researching. There is always something to learn.
