Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0800793587, Paperback)The mustard seed. The wineskins. The sheep and the goats. Through these and dozens more parables, Jesus helped his followers-then and now-grasp spiritual truth. Dr. R. T. Kendall, who for years preached from Martyn Lloyd-Jones's pulpit at Westminster Chapel in London, unwraps Jesus' simple stories one by one, uncovering profound meaning. Why did Jesus reveal so much about his Kingdom in parables? "He was building a bridge from the natural to the spiritual," writes Dr. Kendall. He shows how Jesus used parables to sow seeds in the listener's heart that could later grow and bear fruit. Readers will learn how parables safeguard the secrets of God, reveal his sovereignty, and actually survey salvation-from conversion, through the work of the Holy Spirit, to what happens to a believer at death. As readers begin to understand the purpose, promise, and paradox of the parables, they will get to know, in a new and fresh way, the One who told them. Two thousand years ago and today, the parables enliven and enlighten the hearts of all who have ears to hear.
