The Art of Parables:
Reinterpreting the Teaching Stories of Jesus in Word & Sculpture
Many people believe the parables bring us as near to Jesus as we can get.
Theologian and artist Charles McCollough challenges readers with new insights from all of the most commonly taught parables of Jesus. Using a unique two-stage method, he first translates each parable visually through sculpture. Then he places and interprets each parable in its historical political and economic context, with surprising and stimulating results.
