The Parables of Jesus
From the author and illustrator of The Kingdom of God Bible Storybook comes a fully illustrated and faithful retelling of 26 parables of Jesus in a beautiful cloth-bound hardcover book.
Written with ages 4 to 12 in mind, The Parables of Jesus aims to lead families deeper into the heart of Jesus' teaching. Covering well-known parables like The Good Samaritan and lesser-known tales like The Dishonest Manager, these short stories provide an engaging way for children to learn surprising truths about Jesus and his coming kingdom.
Each of the ten chapters contains a summary page with questions to explain the message of the parable and guide conversations.Endorsements:
"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."
The Parables of Jesus, by Tyler Van Halteren with Aleksander Jasinski, 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.
“'Biblically faithful and beautifully crafted’ nicely summarizes this wonderful children’s book on parables. Learning to see parables as doors, windows and mirrors offers an important framework for beginning to interpret the parables. Even more so than is highlighted here, many of Jesus’ parables function in two or all three of these ways. But a real strength of the book is that it contains the complete text of Jesus’ amazing stories, so readers will first of all learn what he actually said. I’ll be ordering copies for my grandchildren!”

—Scott James, author of The Sower, The Littlest Watchman, The Expected One, and Where Is Wisdom?
