'Parables' are stories Jesus told using characters and events familiar to his audience. But parables are a special kind of story and Jesus used them for his special purposes. William Barclay unlocks these stories, revealing the hidden depth and meaning. Cutting through all the commercialism and superficiality that are increasingly typical of the great Christian events and themes, the Insights series brings the Bible vividly to life.
`The simple language and warm humanity which infuses all Barclay's work is to be seen in abundance here. The distance between then and now, or between Jesus and me, is crossed in a split second and the parable becomes a parallel once again - set alongside my life.' -- Richard Littledale
