Publisher's Description

"Some sections of the Bible give us grand theology. Some move us to grateful responses to God. But the parables break through mere words and make us ask whether there has indeed been any real difference in our lives."

In this beloved classic, James Boice takes us systematically through the parables of Jesus, grouping them into five categories: parables of the kingdom, salvation, wisdom and folly, the Christian life, and judgment.

In each section Boice brings Jesus' words to bear on life today. Through his careful study and clear explanation of each parable born from a sermon series he preached at the Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, where he pastored for 32 years he helps us understand just what Jesus meant, and how our hearts and lives ought to respond.

Jesus' parables are memorable for a reason. Discover their power for yourself."

James Montgomery Boice (1938-2000) (A.B., Harvard University; B.D., Princeton Theological Seminary; D.Th., University of Basel, Switzerland; D.D., Theological Seminary of the Reformed Episcopal Church) was speaker on the worldwide radio ministry of the Bible Study Hour and pastor of historic Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia. He was also the chairman of the International Council on Biblical Inerrancy and the founder of the Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology.
