Jesus often spoke in parables, telling stories to share his message of the Kingdom.
Unfortunately, the meaning of these stories is often lost to readers in a very different historical and cultural context.
In this week's giveaway, Jesus, The Middle Eastern Storyteller, Gary Burge uncovers the culture that gives the parables their deepest meaning.
His expert, illustrated guide shows in everyday terms how the customs, literature and values of the ancient world can help us to understand the stories of Jesus, and to follow him more faithfully.
To enter this week’s giveaway simply answer this question in this comments: If Jesus taught so often by parables, why do we so rarely teach by parables today?
