The Significance of the Parables of Jesus Christ is a collection of the parables spoken by Jesus Christ. For each parable the significance for the time of Jesus Christ is included. The forty-two parables are divided into six categories and for each category the significance for the modern day is discussed. The book has been written for the layman and it is hoped that those who read it will understand and be amazed at the messages that are in the parables.
