This book explores the intended meaning, as well as the implications and applications, of the three parables in Luke 15 (The Good Shepherd and the Lost Sheep, The Good Woman and the Lost Coin, and The Good Father and His Two Lost Sons). It reflects the author's immersion in the language, religion, and culture of the Middle East, demonstrating how meaningful the biblical text becomes when a broad background of study and analysis is permitted to illuminate the text.
Western readers will gain an array of new insights from this volume and will be fascinated by the author's nuances of interpretation. The author's analysis shows how the cultural background of Arabic and Muslim theology affects the interpretation of these parables.

What Others Are Saying

"Kenneth Bailey has done it again!—one of this generation's most illuminating expositors of the parables. ...Special insights emerge, specifically from comparison with Psalm 23, rabbinic materials, and Syriac- and Arabic-Christian translations and commentaries. A poignant treatment of the radical nature of God's costly love in finding wayward sinners."
Craig L. BlombergProfessor of the New Testament Denver Seminary, Denver, CO

"Kenneth Bailey treats the reader to a fresh interpretation of the well-known parables found in Luke 15. His thesis that Luke 15 is to be understood as an expansion of Psalm 23... identifies 13 themes that Luke 15 shares with Psalm 23. Combining exegetical insight with theological sensitivity (and)a lively style, pastors and scholars alike will find it interesting, informative, and not a little entertaining."

Jack Dean KingsburyProfessor Emeritus of Biblical Theology Union Theological Seminary, Richmond, VA

"Once again Kenneth E. Bailey has rendered invaluable service in providing intimate knowledge of cultures in the Middle East. Bailey shows us the inexhaustible treasures of the Scriptures and a method of capturing their meaning."
Simon J. KistemakerProfessor of New Testament Emeritus Reformed Theological Seminary, Oviedo, FL

"This delightful book displays a scholar's knowledge of the sources and history of tradition in Luke 15, weighs them insightfully (but) wears his learning lightly and allies it with a profound grasp of the power of narrative (born of his many years in the Middle East). ...Suffusing the whole is transparent piety. One need not agree with every proposal to recommend it to both scholars and preachers."
Donald A. CarsonResearch professor of New Testament^Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, Illinois
