This volume is a combined edition of Kenneth Bailey’s intensive studies of the parables in the Gospel of Luke, Poet and Peasant and Through Peasant Eyes.

Bailey begins by surveying the development of allegorical, historical-eschatological, aesthetic, and existential methods of interpretation. Bailey combines an examination of the poetic structures of the parables with information about the cultural contexts in which the parables were told. Through its combination of literary and cultural analyses, Bailey’s study makes a number of profound advances in parabolic interpretation.
