Each parable broken down.

I love how he broke down each parable and how they flowed together to ultimately tell the true story that heaven can only be gained through Christ.

This is truly a must hear book

I thought I was well versed on most of our Lord's parables until hearing Pastor John explain them verse by verse.

In Depth Dive

Really great book, an overview of the parables thematically and as a whole. There is a lot that isn't necessarily about the parables but about the general tenets of the Christian faith but a great book overall.
