In the latest chapter of his bestselling Joshua series, Joseph Girzone offers fresh inspiration in this collection of fifty never-before-published contemporary vignettes that underscore the most important lessons of the gospel. Joseph Girzones novels about Joshua, the carpenter who transforms ordinary lives with words of peace and loving actions, have sold more than three million copies and captured the hearts of readers around the world. InThe Parables of Joshua, perhaps his most powerful book since the originalJoshua, Girzone distills the essence of Christian teaching in entertaining and inspiring bite-sized tales set against the background of current society. For some today, the parables of the New Testament are quaint, old-fashioned stories, with little relevance to everyday life in the twenty-first century. As Girzone writes in his Introduction, I have heard the most callous people comment with such great piety on the parables that I could not help but wonder if we havent made parables pleasant-sounding fables about human situations long past, but with no present-day meaning. In order to recapture their original vitality Girzone revives the timeless messages behind the original parables by dressing them in modern clothes, presenting them through Joshua in a conversational style that will resonate with a modern audience.
