Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great book on the meaning of the parables  Sep 27, 2007
This book provides an excellent discussion of the meaning of Jesus' parables. I learned so much about Jesus' teachings that I never knew were true. It is a little "wordy" and scholarly, but the information is eye-opening.
 
This is a great book  Apr 14, 2007
I found out about this book from our priest's wife when we used it for a bible study group. We loved it. Boy the discussions it fostered!! That was back when the three books were seperate and I think we paid almost as much for each book as you can now buy the one combined book for. A great deal. I've given all my copies away and now will buy a couple of these new ones (I already know who I'm giving one to).

This guy is a terrific author and theologen. I love his writing style.

GET THIS BOOK!! You won't be sorry.
 
Good theology!  Mar 17, 2007
This was given to me by a friend a couple of years ago, and sat on a shelf until a month ago - what a mistake! This is excellent theology - not your average interpretation of the gospel story, yet still well within the realm of "orthodoxy". It's well thought out, well presented, and very readable - can't wait to preach some of this stuff.
 
Refreshing  Mar 16, 2006
Mr. Capon's approach to the parables is a wonderful change. His style is quite readable -- a book that anyone in the pews could engage. He is witty and not stuffy about his subject matter. And yet he is reverent -- he understands of whom he speaks! I've made use of this for sermon preparation. It preaches.
 
"Not Your Father's Oldsmobile"  Nov 24, 2003
There's an old saying: "Familiarity breeds contempt." So it is with the parables of Jesus. Everyone thinks they know what he is teaching. So much so, that the contempt committed is against the very heart of the gospel message. Instead of radical, liberating, and scandalous good news, we end up with warmed over ethics, served up on a bed of moralistic legalism, and covered with a layer of heavy-handed, rule laden religion. But that isn't what you get with Capon! Instead of showing age old contempt for the gospel of grace, Father Capon leads his readers to a new awareness of the eternal truth of God's generosity in Christ. It is like a rich delightful meal, that you savor along the way. Once you've feasted there, you can never go back to the "greasy spoon" theology so popular in the Christian sub-culture today. This is three books in one. Previously published in three separate volumes, Kingdom, Grace and Judgment was released in 2002 as one marvelous book. You will not find anything better on the parables of Jesus. Capon divides the teaching ministry of Jesus into three periods and correlating subjects: kingdom, grace and judgment. Each volume brings Jesus closer to the cross, and as it does, the intensity, drama and passion of his message grows exponentially. This as the advertisement says, is "not your Father's Oldsmobile." You will find yourself laughing out loud at the author's outrageous sense of humor, praising out loud for the divine author's generous heart, and weeping with gratitude for the mercy and grace of the crucified and risen Christ! This is the best introduction to the genius, wit and scholarship of Father Capon's works. Read this book and you will never see the gospels the same again!
