Book Review: Parables

Parables by John MacArthur “helps readers understand Jesus' parables and how they relate to the whole of His message. Jesus was a master storyteller, and the parables He told were ingeniously simple word pictures with profound spiritual lessons. Understanding the parables is a crucial matter for followers of Jesus. Jesus told parables so His people might comprehend His message about the kingdom of God clearly. Master expositor and Bible commentator John MacArthur has spent a lifetime explaining the Word of God in clear and comprehensible terms. In Parables he helps Christians understand the essential lessons contained in the most famous and influential short stories the world has ever known.”
I enjoyed this book a lot.  I love how he dissects the parables and pulls all the amazing messages out of them in a way that is easier to understand and read along for the reader. This helps believers and nonbelievers understand the meaning of Jesus’s most profound teachings.  This book helps the ready truly appreciate how amazing Jesus was as a story teller, and a messiah, and as a fulfiller of prophecy in so many ways.

Note: I was given a copy of this book to read and review.  The opinions above are my own an I was not compensated for a positive review.
