Restore the wonder of the parables, the joy of the Gospel...and the discomfort of the Sword of Truth stabbed firmly in your gut. 

Not the Parables of Jesus contains more than 40* different takes on the original parables to snap us out of our over-familiarity and to open our eyes to the truth of the Gospel.

Half tongue-in-cheek, half right between the eyes

Often fun, sometimes poignant, and occasionally painful, these parables reveal our cultural biases, hidden assumptions, and the lies we believe.

Not the Bible. It’s like the Bible. Only not.

* Bet you think that means there are only 41 parables? Well there are actually 42. So there!

I chuckled several times

if you know the parables well, as i do, it is funny. I think God rolls his eyes at our human nature sometimes and these corrected parables are more corrcect according to how our society works. really funny, not for a the bible thumping christian. but it would feel good to thump them back with this book. ((read a little slower next time) oh yeah i can slow down the speed with my app)

Appropriately Irreverent

Jesus is honored and more clear to me because of this book. It is like standing on your head while being verbally assaulted by angry retail customers. It certainly gives one a new perspective, and one leaves very changed.
