In the Gospels, Jesus often spoke to the people in parables - not only that, he seemed to think in parables, acted out parables - he was a walking parable. Parables are almost unknown elsewhere in Scripture, yet they comprise a huge proportion of Jesus' teaching to those around him, and through them, to us. He always intended his parables to have life-changing implications: in fact he defined them as being what determined those who were alive to his message, and those who were not. Terry Johnston helps his readers in this volume to apply the parables of Jesus to their own lives.
