This book is a compilation of visual images and written reflections that focus on a sample of twenty-one parables of Jesus of Nazareth. There is also a Prologue, 'Why Parables?' and an Epilogue, 'Why Jesus?'.

"Heaven and earth are far from each other, according to many religions, separated by an enormous void, traversed cautiously only by the truly holy or the deeply penitent. But in Jesus' vision heaven and earth have come close. So close, in fact, that they overlap. According to Jesus, the kingdom of heaven invades the kingdom of this earth, its values bleeding into the fabric of a torn and frayed world....The parables are what they are. Simple stories that subversively sketch an alternate world, a world brought to earth by Jesus....How fitting then, that Maz has chosen to illuminate Jesus' parables with her beautiful images. Maz allows Jesus' stories to stand alone. She doesn't paint literal interpretations of the parables. Too respectful of Jesus' masterful imagination, she simply fashions evocative work that illuminates or references them. She is eager that biblical stories present the challenge or the comfort Jesus originally intended when he first told them.
"Maz Gill-Harper does us a great service in this collection. She invites us to look into the world that Jesus concocts, his heaven-on-earth kingdom that includes the turning of fear into love, the turning of anger into grace, the turning of apathy into faith. This is ancient wisdom, but here in this collection it is presented with freshness and bold, uncompromising faith."


- Dr Michael Frost, Morling College, Sydney.
