Still More Not the Parables of Jesus: Revised Satirical Version

Book Overview
Parables with beattitude. What if the parables weren't how you remembered? Would it help you see what you'd always missed? Still More Not the Parables of Jesus contains one last bunch of 40 satirical takes on the original parables to snap us out of our over-familiarity and to open our eyes to the truth of the Gospel. Half tongue-in-cheek, half right between the eyes Often fun, sometimes poignant, and occasionally painful; these parables reveal our cultural biases, hidden assumptions, and the lies we believe. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me St Paul* O for a thousand tongues to sing this great book's praise Charles Wesley* This really is the last time I accept anything my wife gives me adam* Not the Bible. It's like the Bible. Only not. John was born at a very young age with his umbilical cord wrapped around his neck. At first, it appeared that no lasting damage had been done, but as he grew it became clear that his sense of humour had been damaged irreparably. John lives with his family near Oxford, England where daily he wonders how his wife still finds the same jokes funny after more than 20 years of marriage. * Everything's true about these statements except the quotes.
