Reflections on the Greatest Parables Ever Told
Everyone likes to hear a story! Jesus used stories, which are called parables, all the time in his teachings, precisely with a view to changing lives. Simply put, a parable is "an earthly story with a heavenly meaning." Jesus' parables are the greatest of such stories ever told.
The proof of a superior story does not consist in its original telling but rather in how often it is retold. The parables narrated by Jesus have been retold countless numbers of times for over two thousand years and continue to be retold!
This book reflects on the 34 parables Jesus told us — "The Prodigal Son," "The Lost Sheep," "The Good Samaritan," "The Mustard Seed," "The Rich Man and Lazarus" — to name a few. Preachers and teachers, and even students of scripture and morals, will find the modern and practical reflections, discussion questions and prayers in this book very helpful for their preparation, preaching, teaching, reflection and study. A book set to change the life of the reader!
The 7 Last Words of Jesus from the Cross
The 7 Last Words of Jesus from the Cross is a treatise of reflections on the sayings attributed to Jesus during his crucifixion. His final words have particular significance and meaning as it would have with any dying person's utterances. These words are forever contemporary, containing as they do not only the art of dying but also the art of living. They embody the depth of Jesus' human experience. They are, therefore, Our Lord' s words for the whole of humanity. As we encounter awful violence, suffering and death, Jesus' last statements have a strong message that gives the reader reason to accept suffering with equanimity and look at death with anticipation. The contents of this book make possible a truly deep reflection on every word of Jesus' final utterances that profoundly reveal the Father's merciful and unfailing love for each one of us.
