In this intriguing set of ""no holds barred"" verbal exchanges, advocates for the Lord and the Devil discuss six of Jesus' parables in a point/counterpoint framework. Clearly delineated opposing points of view shed new light on these familiar stories, and the fascinating format is guaranteed to keep you reading to see how the arguments will develop. The stark contrast of the Devil's enticements with the Lord's redeeming message provides a stimulating vehicle for seriously confronting basic issues of faith, while reaffirming the Good News of God's ultimate victory. The Devilish Dialogues is not only an absorbing resource for personal spiritual growth; it's also a model for captivating presentations in sanctuary, classroom, and retreat settings, and is especially well-suited for weekly Lenten programming.
Parables discussed are:
* The Prodigal Son(Luke 15:11-32)
* The Great Feast(Luke 14:15-24)
* The Ten Virgins(Matthew 25:1-13)
* The Unprofitable Servant(Matthew 25:14-30)
* The Parable Of The Sower(Mark 4:1-20)
* The Wicked Husbandsmen(Mark 12:1-12)
