The Parables for TodayJohn Irvine, via The Good Book Stall
Alyce McKenzie is a professor, pastor and preacher and in this book she introduces the reader to the familiar parables in a fresh and interesting way. She narrates the events of the parables as they appear in the Gospels, explaining the meaning they would have had in Jesus’ own day and the significance they have for us today. In this way the parables take on a new relevance and challenge us with their abiding message. This is a realistic and illuminating guide to familiar texts. It includes questions and ideas for discussion and would therefore be very useful for group study.
