The parables of Jesus pose a striking challenge to current thinking about personal relationships, money, security, and success. They search our hearts and try our attitudes, showing us the truth about ourselves and pointing the way God wants us to go. The parables confront our worldliness with the searching perspective of heaven - all the while deepening our understanding of salvation and the priorities of Christ our King. In short, they turn our world upside down. Richard Phillips shows how as he explores Jesus' parables of the sower, the rich fool, the lost treasure, and many more in these thirteen chapters. Discussion questions help make this book well suited to group or individual study.
