Summary

Summary

It can be accurately argued that the nature of the entire world-order was irrevocably upended by Jesus' parables. Christ's message, in familiar imagery, began to shred the complex social divides that had existed for centuries. That, author Denis McBride asserts, is the reason that they deserve close scrutiny. The Parables of Jesus helps the average reader uncover the rich details--deeply woven into the fabric of the stories Jesus told--that reveal much about Christ, his values, and his unique social viewpoint.
