Parables for Preachers: The Gospel of Mark

by

Parables for Preachers: The Gospel of Mark Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The parables of Jesus are puzzling sayings and stories with world-transforming potential. Parables for Preachers offers an understanding of how parables work and a fresh variety of possible meanings not only for Jesus's original audience and for the early Christians for whom Matthew, Mark, and Luke wrote but also for contemporary Christians as well. The Gospel parables are analyzed in the order in which they appear in the Lectionary, making this book an indispensable resource for preachers, teachers, catechists, liturgy planners, and Bible study groups.

Barbara Reid is Professor of New Testament at Catholic Theological Union, Chicago. She is the author of Matthew in the New Collegeville Bible Commentary series as well as Choosing the Better Part? Women in the Gospel of Luke, both published by Liturgical Press.

Synopsis:

In the Gospels Jesus never explains his parables. Yet Sunday after Sunday preachers are asked to open up the meaning of the parables to their congregations. Barbara Reid helps preachers offer fresh fare from these familiar stories.<P>The purpose behind Reid's work is to aid preachers by bringing together current biblical research on the parables in the hope that it will open up new vistas of meaning and help spark their creativity. She also offers an understanding of how parables communicate, and invites preachers to try out the parabolic techniques of preaching.<P>Parables for Preachers is not only for preachers, but for all who are interested in a deeper understanding of parables, particularly teachers, catechists, liturgy planners, and members of groups for homily preparation, Bible study, or faith sharing.
