Christ knew that the splendor of heaven is too great for us to bear just now, and so he used parables as clues to the mystery of paradise. In them are hints of heaven, and they offer profound spiritual advice meant to guide us on the road to eternal glory.
In our age, Christ's Parables are often reduced to exercises in moralism. In these pages, Fr. George Rutler - acclaimed author and EWTN television host - unveils these deceptively simple stories, showing you their hidden meanings and how they apply to our own age and way of life.
Let Fr. Rutler take you on an enriching tour of Scripture's 24 parables as you learn:
Tares in the Field of the Lord: Why it's necessary that scandals beset the Church - and how it brings about a stronger harvest.
The Mustard Seed: Why it gave hope to the early Church and prefigures her glorious future.
The Yeast: How God speaks in a gentle and inward voice which melts the so.
