Stories with Intent offers pastors and students an accessible and comprehensive guide to Jesus' parables. Klyne Snodgrass explores in vivid detail the context in which these stories were told, the purpose they had in Jesus' message, and the ways they have been interpreted by the church and modern scholarship. While holding a consciously evangelical approach, Snodgrass deals throughout with a broad spectrum of opinions and interpretations.

He begins by surveying the primary issues in parables interpretation. Offering both a new, more functional classification system for Jesus' parables and guidelines for interpreting them, he provides an overview of other parables -- often neglected in the discussion -- from the Old Testament, Jewish writings, and the Greco-Roman world. The remaining chapters group the longer and more important parables of Jesus thematically and give a comprehensive treatment of each, including background and significance for today.

Käyttäjän arvio  - Tower_Bob - LibraryThing

This book contained much more information than I personally needed. It was incredibly researched and the author is about as thorough as can be. Having said that, the book was very helpful and the summaries and applications for each parable were GREAT! Lue koko arvostelu

I really like this particular book about the parables. I have several in my library. This one is a keeper! The applications are practical yet true to the text and historical-critical analysis. Lue koko arvostelu
