This updated version of 'The Parables of Jesus' sheds light on the parables and the parabolic sayings found in the Synoptic Gospels.  Each story is examined in light of its historical setting and cultural implications and then applied to the Christian life today.  The entire text of each story is given first, followed by commentary and an explanation of the unique characteristics of each Gospel.  Technical details are provided in endnotes for those who wish to do further study.  The book also includes a select bibliography to direct readers to additional resources."
