In this second volume in Robert Farrar Capon's trilogy on Jesus' parables, Capon considers the generally short stories occurring between the feeding of the five thousand and the triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Treating each parable individually, Capon sets it in its immediate context and message of grace. His ability to bridge the gap between then and now makes clear the original meaning of the parables and their relevance to modern times. And his insistence that the essence of the gospel is grace provides a much needed corrective to the contemporary version of success oriented Christianity.^
In his highly-readable manner, Capon discusses Jesus' parables told between the feeding of the five thousand and the triumphal entry into Jerusalem. His ability to bridge the gap between then and now makes clear both the original meaning and the modern-day relevance of these parables.
