I loved it and so will the grands! The format of the chapters which are loosely categorized into
space, earth, animals, people, in no particular order, followed by an index. The titled chapters begin with a Bible quotation from Old or New Testament from the International Children's Bible or the Easy to Read Version followed by the short article, illustrated examples of, then a brief prayer and another illustration of Explore The Wonder. Everything is simply but beautifully illustrated and with selected photos. It's also perfect for ESL!
I requested and received a free temporary ebook copy from Thomas Nelson: CHILDREN'S, Thomas Nelson via NetGalley. Thank you! ( )

There are whole sections of this book that I probably should print out and post on my wall. We get so caught up in earthly things that we forget that we should be preparing for eternity. Parables is a definite reminder as it explains The Mysteries of God's Kingdom Revealed Through the Stories Jesus Told.

John MacArthur is the author (and preacher) who has probably had the greatest impact on my spiritual development over the years. He takes complicated or controversial Bible passages and explains them simply for all to understand. He has devoted his life to studying the Scripture and teaching it to others. By joining his Grace to You mailing list you can receive every new book or resource free, even study Bibles! That says something about the heart of the ministry and their sincere desire for the truth to be communicated to every soul in the world.

In this book, MacArthur takes several of the best known parables and explains their meaning. He examines the cultural context, the likely observers, who Jesus was speaking to and the intended impact. He explains how the parables apply to us. He also goes into some detail about Jesus' reason for using parables and how post-modernists are twisting this to encompass their methods of story-telling.

I'm not going to reprint all of the spiritual lessons here as there are many. Great book. Buy it and read it. You won't be disappointed. ( )

Preachers have used Jesus' parables for personal agendas, Sunday school classes treasure these stories you can relate to. What is the significance of Jesus' use of stories as medium for His teaching, pastor-teacher John MacArthur asks in the appendix of Parables The Mysteries of God's Kingdom Revealed Through the Stories Jesus Told. Jesus Himself answered that question when He said He employed parables for a dual reason: to illustrate the truth for those who were willing to receive it, and to obscure the truth from those who hated it anyway.
In this new book MacArthur explores a series of Jesus' parables as recorded in the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke. Whether the true meaning of story's symbolic features is obvious or one that requires some detective work (and yes, the author loves to dig deeper and teach us on his findings), the point is still the same: Jesus' parables were are illustrative of gospel facts. Parables aren't allegories, full of symbols from top to bottom. They highlight one important truth - just like the moral of a well-told story. The kingdom of God, God's grace, His care for the weak and neglected, the call to be prepared for His return, the impossibility to keep all commandments and prohibitions in the Mosaic Law. The stories were not creative alternatives to propositional truth statements, designed to supplant certainty. The parables are no mind games, tricks, myths or invitations to choose any interpretation you like yourself.
Every one of His parables had an important lesson to convey. When you see the key point of a parable, you have understood the essence of whatever truth the story aims to convey. Jesus' stories were remarkable for both their simplicity and their sheer abundance. Jesus clearly like to teach by telling stories rather than giving a list of raw facts for rote memorization, or by outlining information in a neatly catalogued systematic layout. I bet you'll learn many new insights, even from parables you already heard 10 times. ( )

Covers some of the parables in great fashion. The introduction and appendix are very helpful guides in understanding why Christ used parables, and in how many modern scholars attempt to strip them of true principles by which to live. ( )

Parables The Mysteries of God’s Kingdom Revealed Through the Stories Jesus Told.
John Macarthur’s book, Parables, is an interesting and comprehensive look at the parables of Jesus. He explains to whom they were directed and the purpose of these stories in his overall teachings. He presents the parables as lessons told not to make his stories easier to understand, but instead to keep the message hidden and only for those accepting his teaching.

Had it been better organized, Parables would have been a good reference book to use in your daily readings, but I found it difficult to find specific topics or references. It is a useful for those who teach and could also be used as a daily devotional. ( )
