The Parables of Jesus

William Barclay

$27.99

Paperback
Barclay finds in these "best-known stories in the world" new force and significance for the modern reader. As Barclay writes, the parables of Jesus "are stories which are not so much the heritage and the material of the scholar and the theologian as they are the possession of every man". Each chapter analyzes an individual parable -- identifies its theme, explains it in light of the language and customs of the ancient world, and clearly interprets its meaning for us today.
