Summary Unlocks the true meanings and purposes of parable in the Bible so that modern Christians can respond genuinely to Jesus's call to fully participate in the kingdom of God. Moving from parables by Jesus to parables about Jesus, Crosson then presents the four gospels as "megaparables." By revealing how the gospels are not reflections of the actual biography of Jesus, but rather (mis)interpretations by the gospel writers themselves, he reaffirms the power of parables to challenge and enable us to co-create with God a world of justice, love, and peace -- Book jacket.
