Update on Book Contents (#1): Interpreters list with the parables covered by each

John Everett Millais, The Unjust Judge 


It is time to start going through the draft of the book again to try to cut 20,000 more words. To assist me with that, but even more so to make the book more comprehensive and coherent, I have updated my working lists of what I cover in the book:

  • Interpreters and the parables they cover
  • parables and which interpreters cover them

These lists are very rough working lists, so I have not proofed them for typographical errors. Below is the first list.


The list makes it clear that I have accomplished my goal of covering the array of parables (although not all lists of Jesus' "parables" are the same; I did include, for example, Fetti's painting of the Mote and Beam, although it is technically not a parable; but cf. Luke 6:39). I was deliberate as I wrote the draft to make sure that I covered the waterfront well.

As I work through the book draft again, I will try--if other things are equal, such as importance, diversity, or interest--to delete sections on parables that might be "over covered" by the book. That will take into account, of course, that the Prodigal Son and other parables that are more important in Reception History deserve to be treated more than others (but not an overabundance).

Also, the second list will allow me to make more connections between interpreters. I already do so (e.g., on the Wheat and the Weeds with Wazo of Liege, Thomas Aquinas, Roger Williams, etc.), but I certainly can do more.

Overall, I am pretty pleased with the subjects the book draft covers.
