The parables of Jesus are puzzling sayings and stories with world-transforming potential. "Parables for Preachers" offers an understanding of how parables work and a fresh variety of possible meanings not only for Jesus ' original audience and for the early Christians for whom Matthew, Mark, and Luke wrote but also for contemporary Christians as well. The Gospel parables are analyzed in the order in which they appear in the Lectionary, making this book an indispensable resource for preachers, teachers, catechists, liturgy planners, and Bible study groups.

Barbara Reid is Professor of New Testament at Catholic Theological Union, Chicago. She is the author of "Matthew" in the New Collegeville Bible Commentary series as well as "Choosing the Better Part? Women in the Gospel of Luke," both published by Liturgical Press.
