Parables with beattitude.
What if the parables weren’t how you remembered? Would it help you see what you’d always missed?
Still More Not the Parables of Jesus contains one last bunch of 40 satirical takes on the original parables to snap us out of our over-familiarity and 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.
