Praise for the Print Edition

If you think that you have seen and heard everything there is to see and hear in Jesus’ parables of judgment, then you haven’t looked or listened with Capon. Anyone who cares about Scripture will be edified through his interpretative work.

William Willimon, professor of the practice of Christian ministry, Duke Divinity School

Capon releases the parables out of their right-handed prison and frees them into the land of left-handed mystery where they belong. He reminds us that these parables are not theological propositions calling for analysis or requiring systems of thought. They are pictures, images, poetry—left-handed communication calling for faith and demanding obedience. Capon’s writing is of enormous importance for those who dare to journey into faith as mystery and trust.

Robert Webber, former president, The Robert E. Webber Institute for Worship Studies

Capon’s attempt to reframe the parables, and to move the reader away from the familiar ways of hearing them, offers much food for thought and reflection, and opens the reader to seeing Jesus’ message and work from a new perspective . . . Gripping and entertaining.
