John MacArthur is a pastor, teacher and author, with over four decades of ministry experience. In “Parables: The Mysteries of God’s Kingdom Revealed Through the Stories Jesus Told”, Mr. MacArthur studies the parables of Jesus to explain and further highlight God’s messages.
This book is by no means a breezy read. Clearly, a great deal of research has gone into detailing each of the parables included in the Bible. Some readers might find the book somewhat dry, as this book comes across as a study aid for ministers and other religious leaders. There’s an abundance of information for readers to absorb and taking notes as you go is probably in order.
I found “Parables” interesting, yet somewhat tedious. I will most likely go back and reread the book at a later date when I have more time to thoroughly grasp each concept a little better.
