The parables of Jesus make up a crucial part of the Bible. A parable is a tale about a simple, common subject to illustrate a deeper, valuable moral lesson. The source definition of the word parable means a placement side by side for the purpose of comparison.

Jesus Christ often used parables to describe the Kingdom of Go. In that way, the parables of Jesus both conceal and reveal

Jesus Christ often used parables to describe the Kingdom of God. What are the Kingdom parables, and why did Jesus employ them in His teaching? . In that way, the parables of Jesus both conceal and reveal. What most people today do not know is that God’s plan to allow humans to comprehend His truth and receive salvation takes place during different ages or periods of time. Put simply, this is not the only day of salvation. God the Father determines the age in which each individual will be given his or her opportunity to understand and respond to the gospel. To learn more about this astounding truth, see Plan of Salvation. The primary theme of the parables.

For centuries many have come to know God through the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus often used parables to teach. Much like Aesop's Fables, the parables are short, allegorical stories designed to teach a moral principle. The world in which Jesus taught was not unlike our own in terms of being characterized by oppression. The parables, more often than not, spoke about oppression as an evil, challenging the oppressors to change their ways and the oppressed to speak out. More than twenty centuries and countless translations later, we read those parables in, but seldom about,.

The parables of Jesus are found in the Synoptic Gospels and some of the non-canonical gospels. They form approximately one third of his recorded teachings. Christians place great emphasis on these parables; which they generally regard as the words of Jesus.

   The parable, a short story told to impart a lesson to the listener, was the chief teaching tool of Jesus Christ. In this delightful and inspirational book, author Michael Manning, the TV host of The Word in the World, takes readers on a journey through fifteen of the most beloved parables from the New Testament, in order to enlighten the many different ways seekers can understand God’s presence in their daily lives.   From the parable of the talents to the stories of the wedding feast and the Good Samaritan, Manning shows us that God has many faces to meet the diverse challenges we all experience. Certainly God can be seen as a parent or an authority figure, but as the parables demonstrate, God is also a humble servant, a conversationalist, a friend, a risk taker, and an optimist, to name just a few. Knowing this and experiencing God’s many faces can dramatically change your life forever.   In our fast-paced, hectic society, Manning’s practical guide for walking a spiritual path is an illuminating, multidimensional work that will help readers to slow down, stop, look, listen, and gaze upon the beautiful faces of God and all his creation.

I love the parables and Fr. Mike puts them into plain English for a better understanding. I use this as daily scripture readings.

In the Fifteen Faces of God, Father Mike goes over parables and shows us how these were used to make a point. I particularly enjoyed the chapter on forgiving. It is important that we be able to forgive ourselves. The questions at the end of each chapter allow us to think about what we have read. Most books don't ask us to think. It's worth the read.

I love AMAZON! My son needed this book for a college class. He is a broke college student so I asked him if he wanted to save some cash and buy through Amazon. He begrudgingly did but was worried the book would be "marked up" as it was used. He was pleasantly surprised when the "used" book was sent to him in perfect condition at a fraction of the cost! He is now an Amazon fan as well!

I was so prepared to like and to study this book, but chapter after chapter I found myself disappointed. Fr Manning is an enthusiastic communicator, but I found his insights into the parables to be trite and superficial (eg, his reflections on the parable of The Good Samaritan were only about racial bigotry. Since the 1960's this has been preached extensively in connection with this parable. There was nothing from Fr Manning about how his insights differed from interpretations of earlier writers, such as the Fathers of the Church.) The premise of the book is so enticing--to know God better-- that I hope Fr Manning expands and deepens his reflections.

This book is enjoyable, easy to read and spoke to my heart. The insight of Michael Manning is amazing.....and inspiring!
I have actually used chapters in this book as my morning devotion. Looking at the parables from different angles opened my eyes to see and understand God in varied-more expanded- light.
This book speaks to ALL people of all faiths.
I have purchased several copies for friends who are at all different stages in life.
Everyone is blessed.
When I read Fifteen Faces Of God I felt spiritually renewed and uplifted with each page that I turned. I felt closer to God. I felt unconditionally loved and deeply accepted by him. I didn't realized how much I struggled with accepting God's love, forgiveness and acceptance until I read this book. I am not a catholic and thought that since this book was written by a Priest it would be heavy on catholicism and such but that is NOT the case. This book speaks on God and the different ways he reveals himself to us. A very encouraging and enlightening book.
