PARABLES OF THE KINGDOM by Robert Farrar Capon
This book offers a fresh, adventurous look at some of Jesus' parables in the larger light of their entire gospel and biblical context. Maintaining that openness is the major requirement for approaching the Scriptures, Robert Farrar Capon seeks to open our minds to Jesus' proclamation of the kingdom of God - a mysterious kingdom marked by paradoxical, "left-handed" power.
The first volume of Capon's trilogy on the parables, The Parables of the Kingdom covers the short, almost one-sentence parables that occur in the Gospels before the feeding of the five thousand. Among these parables are the Sower, the Mustard Seed, the Pearl of Great Price and the Net.
