Timeless stories from the Christian faith and part of the world's heritage of wisdom. These stories - or parables - can be enjoyed as everyday tales of people and the things they do, both wise and foolish. Yet, for those to understand life's mystery, the parables provide a wealth of understanding. The world of Jesus' parables is God's world. By the choices people make, they can live as God's people and make their world part of God's heaven.

Jesus always drew a crowd when he told his stories: down-to-earth stories rich in humor, compassion, and with an understanding of human nature; thought-provoking stories that offer glimpses of the character of God and heaven itself.
In this book they are retold for children in a lively and engaging style while retaining the resonances of the Gospel accounts in the Bible that have preserved them as part of the world's heritage for nearly two thousand years.About the Author:
