Endorsements & Reviews-
"A very refreshing and helpful book. . . . The work of Borsch informs and engages. The preacher looking for sound exegesis of the parables in the service of proclamation will find the work of Borsch to be one of the best, if not the very best, available in the field." --Arland J. Hultgren Luther Northwestern Seminary
"Borsch's skillful use of illustrations [helps] bridge the gulf between our experience and what we hear in the parables. . . . I command this book as a wonderful introduciton to the parables. It would make a good textbook for either school or parish. Preachers will find much to stimulate their meditation." --Rodney A. Whitacre Trinity Episcopal School of Ministry
