    Book details

God has many ways of teaching us. Jesus taught by example. Men looked at how He lived, and decided to walk that way also. He also taught by precept, speaking directly to people, in a way we might call teaching today. But his favorite way of teaching was through the use of the parable. He loved to tell stories -- stories with spiritual meanings. "In the fall of 1987," Jamie said, "I visited Israel with a camera crew. We had obtained permission from the Israeli government to set up cameras at ten of the sites where Jesus told his best-known parables. There I was to re-tell, on location, these marvelous stories. I had long suspected Jesus used visual objects when telling His parables. When He told the story of the Good Shepherd, He pointed to a shepherd with his flock of sheep in a nearby pasture. When He told the parable of the sower and the seed, He was probably sitting on a rock beside a field where a farmer was sowing his spring seed. Jesus was a man of the earth, and He used earthly things to convey spiritual truth." In this book, Jamie tells of 10 of Jesus' most notable parables and relates them to our lives today. It's a wonderful book, full of truth and wisdom.
