Stories with Intent offers pastors and students an accessible and comprehensive guide to Jesus' parables. Klyne Snodgrass explores in vivid detail the context in which these stories were told, the purpose they had in Jesus' message, and the ways they have been interpreted by the church and modern scholarship. While holding a consciously evangelical approach, Snodgrass deals throughout with a broad spectrum of opinions and interpretations.

He begins by surveying the primary issues in parables interpretation. Offering both a new, more functional classification system for Jesus' parables and guidelines for interpreting them, he provides an overview of other parables - often neglected in the discussion - from the Old Testament, Jewish writings, and the Greco-Roman world. The remaining chapters group the longer and more important parables of Jesus thematically and give a comprehensive treatment of each, including background and significance for today.

If you are studying parables you must have this in your book shelve
5 stars By Gary, Aug 18 2017
It will definitely open your horizon when reading the gospel.  Compare to Bloomberg Interpreting Parables, it adds another flavour. Not to mention Snodgrass massive book won the 2009 winner in the Biblical Studies category.  Snodgrass didn't waste too much pages on historical background, thought if you are interested in this area which I think is a must to master Parables you can go for Bloomberg's book.  Having said that he gave to the point introduction and then dive into the main parables. 

 As the book indicate, Yes! Is very compressive and the book is very expensive but worth the money.  Save up brothers! You will have no regret on it.
