    "This is a book every Christian parent will want to have on their family's bookshelf.


    Vibrantly illustrated, clearly written, The Parables of Jesus will help young kids better understand and remember Jesus’s teachings about the kingdom of God.

    Whether for bedtime lap reading or mealtime devotionals, make this book a staple of your family’s reading life."

  • Dr. David S. Dockery

    The Parables of Jesus is a thoughtfully designed, well crafted, and illuminatingly illustrated retelling of 26 parables that were told by Jesus in the Gospels. Written with children in mind, the book will be helpful for all family members to think deeply about the meaning of Jesus' kingdom teaching for today. Each section of the book concludes with reflective summaries and engaging and applicable questions. I am delighted to recommend this beautifully bound book, which will make a great gift for special occasions. I plan to purchase copies for my grandchildren and strongly urge others to do the same.”
