Item Description...
Robert Stein investigates how the parables have been interpreted throughout the ages begining with the early church fathers, continuing through the Middle Ages and the Reformation, and concluding with recent critical discussion. He establishes basic principles for interpreting parables, demonstrates how to apply these principles, and organizes the parables under four major themes: the Kingdom of God as a present reality, the Kingdom of God as demand, the God of grace, and final judgement.

Publishers Description

A clear and thorough introduction to the best known of Jesus' teachings, this much-needed text examines what parables are, why Jesus taught in parables, and the purpose and place of parables in the Gospel narratives. Invaluable for the beginning seminary or college students and for church study groups, this enlightening work reveals the meaning of the parables when they were first given, their meaning for the Gospel writers, and their meaning for us today.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
If you think "Good" when you hear the word Samaritan you need to buy this Book!  Oct 15, 2005
Dr. Stein has written many books which are worth your investigation! This one is apropiate for anyone who is interested in engaging the parables. If you are a curious seeker, a pastor, or Sunday School teacher, this book will help you understand a method for not only understanding the parables, but relating them to today's life and even retelling them in contemporary terms - duplicating thevery effect that Jesus had on his hearers!
Here we have a very clear and concise book on interpretation of the parables. After demonstrating some of the strange ideas of ancient interpreters Dr. Stein shows how to clearly understand the parables. The basis for Stein's method comes from his consistant application of the Authorial Intent principle.
He once said in class to me that all of the other methods will ultimately fade as they are not really interpretation. That the code breakers in WW II were not interested in their feelings or what the codes meant to them, but what the encoders were trying to communicate.
If you are looking for an entry level book to understand how to interpret parables, this book is for you. He taught the contents of this book to AMerican soldiers in January 1990 at a conference held at the Bibleheim in Switzerland - they understood it and you can too! Buy it, read it, love it!
