by Theodore J. Nottingham

The inner meaning of the parables of Jesus and their transformational wisdom for daily life are made accessible and applicable for every reader. This book features an in depth examination of twenty parables and the teachings embedded in the stories and images, revealing their universal value for anyone seeking spiritual development. In decoding these core teachings, instructions and practical methodologies are uncovered for consciously living in the Presence of Holy beyond dogma and tradition.
The Parable is a kind of language that seeks to bridge our ordinary way of thinking and understanding with spiritual wisdom. We do not have a language to speak of spiritual matters, so the parable and its imagery is a conduit for us to reveal sacred teaching so that we can be impacted by the power of the Divine in our lives. In the parables of Jesus, we find a timeless spiritual teaching that can make all things new in the heart, mind, and soul of each person. They can cause people to move from the darkness of self-absorption to the light of active unconditional love. This metanoia, this renewal and transformation is the hope for humanity. This book features twenty of the great parables, including several miracle stories which are parable teachings at heart. Among them are The Path of Return: The Parable of the Prodigal Son; Good Soil: The Parable of the Sower; The Eleventh Hour: The Parable of the Laborers; Forgiveness: The Parable of the Unmerciful Servant; Mercy: The Parable of The Good Samaritan; From The Heart: The Parable of the Blind Leaders; Watchfulness: The Parable of the Vigilant Servants; The Miracle as Parable: Water into Wine.
