At the very heart of the Christian religion is a Jewish man called Jesus who made claims about himself and statements about life which many thought, and still think, are preposterous. This book is one of a series of three books which gives pupils the opportunity to investigate such claims and statements and to make up their own minds about them. In this book Jesus is compared to a courtly fool whose role was often to make people think seriously about life by telling them thought-provoking and often amusing stories. The book begins with Jesus' warning that there are life "storms" to be faced and that only the wise will survive. The book then goes on to explore the parables of Jesus and what they say we must do if we are to be wise.
