In his highly-readable manner, Capon discusses Jesus' parables told between the feeding of the five thousand and the triumphal entry into Jerusalem. His ability to bridge the gap between then and now makes clear both the original meaning and the modern-day relevance of these parables.

Following up on his Parables of the Kingdom (Zondervan, 1985), Capon turns to Jesus's tales told between the feeding of the 5000 and the triumphal entryall read (not surprisingly) as statements of radical, unmerited grace made possible by his death and resurrection and our own ongoing deaths to all moral bookkeeping, all attempts to live our own way into heaven. As always, Capon sometimes pushes his point to outrageous extremes; yet if he virtually ignores the concept of God's justice, he is surprisingly orthodox in his insistence on dealing with all of Scripture. Most provocative. EC
