Publisher's Summary

Pastor-teacher John MacArthur helps listeners understand Jesus' parables and how they relate to the whole of his message.

Jesus was a master storyteller, and the parables he told were ingeniously simple word pictures with profound spiritual lessons. Understanding the parables is a crucial matter for followers of Jesus. Jesus told parables so his people might comprehend his message about the kingdom of God clearly.

Master expositor and Bible commentator John MacArthur has spent a lifetime explaining the word of God in clear and comprehensible terms. In Parables, he helps Christians understand the essential lessons contained in the most famous and influential short stories the world has ever known.

    Story
    "Each parable broken down."

    I love how he broke down each parable and how they flowed together to ultimately tell the true story that heaven can only be gained through Christ.

    I thought I was well versed on most of our Lord's parables until hearing Pastor John explain them verse by verse.

    "Story of God's Kingdom"

    It was informative, but move through chapters fast,I'm going to have to listen with my Bible in hand a few more times. This book bored me at times, so I struggled to get through it.

    "Awesome!!!"

    Great job by the author putting so much into describing the parables Jesus used. Great book to learn how Jesus told stories that we still use today in are day to day lives to be more like Him.

    Story
    "I like John MacArthur but ..."
    What would have made Parables better?

    The presence of the Holy Spirit.<br/>


    What was most disappointing about John MacArthur’s story?

    The absence of the Holy Spirit.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narration fine.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Parables?

    I would crinkle the whole thing up and throw it in the trash can.<br/>


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't realize he had such a snarky condescending writing style. Was very disappointed in the interpretations. The spirit is weak here, I would not recommend.
