Living the Stories of Jesus in Real Time
In ParableLife many of Jesus’ most familiar parables are examined in three ways: From the context of the text, through an imagininative retelling of the story behind the story of the parable, and how the parable looks today in real time through actual stories of people living now. There is a growing conversation about what it means to live as a follower of Jesus here and now. Living as a part of the body of Christ is more than just finding a slot on a church’s organizational chart and more than acquiring an impressive collection of Bible data by filling a chair in a sanctuary or Sunday School class. To many, the kingdom of God looks like a tangle of beautiful, sloppy, fast-growing rainforest plants, not a tidy line-up of plants safely contained in five-gallon containers on a shady patio.
Growing a Parable Life from the Inside Out
A contemporary retelling of ten of Jesus’s parables. The second in author Michelle Van Loon’s series (Parable Life, FaithWalk 2005) that share the parables as told in the Bible and then retells the same parable through the stories of real life people living today. Thoughts and questions are included in each chapter to help readers connect with God while sparking dialogue with others. A powerful look at the process of spiritual growth, not as a “how to” but as a “why to.”
