NT Scholars blurbs about the book (#7)



Another endorsement for the book was recently posted on the Baker Academic web page, this one from Dr. Matthew Skinner (Luther Seminary):

If the parables stimulate your mind, feed your soul, upset your values, and occasionally confuse you, you're in good company. Exegetes, poets, hymn writers, allegorists, social reformers, novelists, and painters feature in this brisk tour through two thousand years of parable interpretation, often urging readers to see more in the parables or to view them through a different set of eyes. As a knowledgeable guide through a lively history, David Gowler highlights the evocative interpretations that emerge when a parable encounters a fertile imagination.
