The Parables for Today

Product Description

This latest book in the popular For Today series introduces the reader to the main parables of Jesus in an engaging and accessible way. Professor, author, and preacher Alyce McKenzie makes the familiar parables come alive with new meaning, using the best of biblical scholarship to provide an easy entrance to this major form of Jesus’ teachings. McKenzie covers the purpose, properties, and proclaimers of Jesus’ parables before focusing on several of the key parables that form much of the text of the first three Gospels. With questions for discussion at the end of each chapter, this book is ideal for personal and group study.

Alyce M. McKenzie is Associate Professor of Homiletics at Perkins School of Theology of Southern Methodist University. She is the author of a number of books, including Preaching Proverbs: Wisdom for the Pulpit and Matthew (Interpretation Bible Studies), both available from Westminster John Knox Press.


The Beatitudes for Today, by James C. Howell

“Blessed are the readers of this book, for they will come away wiser.”

Publishers Weekly, in a review of The Beatitudes for Today, by James C. Howell

“If you are studying, teaching, or preaching on the Beatitudes, this is the perfect companion. Howell opens up new routes into these well-known proverbs (or sayings of Jesus) and provides useful illustrations and discussion questions to help us look at the familiar with fresh eyes.”

—John A. Cairns, Dean of the Academy for Faith and Life, Fourth Presbyterian Church, Chicago
