Inspired by Archbishop Richard Trench’s Notes on the Parables, Bishop Alfred Barry writes this volume on the subject of Old Testament parables to help readers understand how to interpret the Old Testament itself. Seeing parables in the Proverbs, in symbolic visions, in fables, in figurative prophecy, and in narrative riddles, Barry discusses the best ways of reading and interpreting these parables—using examples from the biblical text—to disambiguate the Old Testament altogether.
