THE POWER OF PARABLE by John Dominic Crossan
ALL OF OUR GALLEYS HAVE BEEN GIVEN AWAY! Please visit us again for new giveaways.

Foremost Jesus scholar John Dominic Crossan—author of bestsellers such as The Historical Jesus, Jesus: A Revolutionary Biography, and The Greatest Prayeris back with his latest work:
The Power of Parable: How Fiction by Jesus Became Fiction about Jesus.

Crossan dissects the literary genre of "parable" to not only show how Jesus taught by using them—but also how the gospel writers crafted their own to help capture the essence of this prophet from Nazareth. By unlocking the meaning and purposes of the Gospel’s parables, we can arrive at a better portrait of this enigmatic and charismatic Jewish figure who transformed his world and the next two thousand years of history.
