Jesus knew the power of stories to touch people’s hearts, so he used parables to teach his followers about the kingdom of God. If you want to know God better, the keys are in the parables.
This book provides short studies on every parable in the Bible. You’ll learn what God wants us to know from the prodigal son, the good Samaritan, the lost sheep, the talents, the sower, and many more.
Each study includes a summary of the parable, the Scripture reference where it can be found, information on the historical and cultural setting, and key points. At the end of each study are questions that open the door to discussion, reflection, or further investigation and help you get to the heart of the parable.
A wonderful tool for small groups or to add variety to your personal devotions. Let these studies draw you nearer to God as they enhance your understanding of his Word.
Fascinating Bible Studies on Every Parable by Dr. William H. Marty was amazing. It brought me back to every parable I can remember hearing and studying about as a child. I liked how this writer went into each parable and went deeper into exploring that with questions. Deep thought provoking questions. Plus, there were explanations with each one. I truly enjoyed this book. It was well-done. Super organized, well-researched, and easy to understand for all ages, Fascinating Bible Studies on Every Parable by this writer is a must have tool. I know this book was not written by someone who shared my exact faith but I am well-versed in what I was taught at my church and this had the same parables we have studied. I was so happy. Overall, I do recommend this to all Christians. Because it is like the the old fairy tales that taught kids lessons. In a way, this shares lessons on life and how to become a better person and one step closer to God.
