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
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.
