From the very beginning, human beings have loved to listen to stories. And Jesus loved to tell them. The parables are vivid, rich,arresting stories that make us think and teach us lessons about our relationship with God and others. From talents to mustard seeds, from shepherds to Samaritans, Jesus used common reference points to teach important truths.

But the parables are filled with ambiguity and room for interpretation. With historical and cultural background, and careful scholarly detail, this book helps readers explore their beauty, richness, and joy.

I really enjoyed this book. It provides a fresh way of seeing the parables. Brosend applies his many years of preaching and teaching experience to help his readers view the parables with new eyes. While his interpretations are solid and he gives great illustrations, what he offers is primarily a concise technique that the readers can use to interpret parables for their own congregations and contexts. His use of humor throughout makes the book a delightful read. My only complaint is that there is no scriptural index, otherwise this would be five stars.

Our Sunday school class is using this book as a study and discussion base. The author's views are thought provoking. We participants have enjoyed adding our own ideas and learning from one another.

Only 108 pages long with a brief study guide in the back, this book impressed me with its accessibility. The author makes a point of keeping it real and avoiding the all too common error that academics often make of intellectual braggadocia, as in "look how smart I am." Does that drive you as nuts as it does me? I was drawn by the author's humility and also his obvious vast knowledge.

This is possibly the most "interesting" book I've ever read on the parables. I found it easy to follow and not only relevant, but it also introduced me to some refreshingly new insights into some overly familiar parables. This book is well worth the investment and gives an enormous amount of information in a very small number of pages.

As an Episcopal priest, I highly recommend it to those like me, whose pastoral duties don't always give them the time they'd like to study dense or thick volumes of scriptural commentary, much as I enjoy that. This book far exceeded my expectations in the quality of information and insights it provides.

Not what I expected but a good read anyway.

Brosend lets the parables speak in many ways, some so modern and almost perverse that the reader has to laugh out loud. There are no easy interpretations, but one comes away thinking.

If you want an example of how far the Episcopal Church has fallen, this book is a perfect example.
The author attempts to make himself and the parables of Jesus relevant by flippantly interpreting them and revising them away from a traditional rendering.
I offered this book at my church as a summer reading and received many negative reviews.
