In the Gospels Jesus never explains his parables. Yet Sunday after Sunday preachers are asked to open up the meaning of the parables to their congregations. Barbara Reid helps preachers offer fresh fare from these familiar stories.

The purpose behind Reid's work is to aid preachers by bringing together current biblical research on the parables in the hope that it will open up new vistas of meaning and help spark their creativity. She also offers an understanding of how parables communicate, and invites preachers to try out the parabolic techniques of preaching.

Parables for Preachers is not only for preachers, but for all who are interested in a deeper understanding of parables, particularly teachers, catechists, liturgy planners, and members of groups for homily preparation, Bible study, or faith sharing.
