Review Text

As simple as its title, as clear as Dr. Mathews always is, this small book will be found extremely helpful by the clergy and bible students and would throw a vastly different light on many difficult passages if critics would read it and try to understand Jesus' true meaning. For to glean truly His meaning one must know His country, His towns, His people, their ways of speaking, modes of living and working. To grasp the point of His parables one must know those at whom they were aimed and as one reads this book one begins to "see" more clearly not only Jesus' world but its counterpart today. This is a book that would be most welcome as a Bon Voyage gift for anyone taking a Mediterranean cruise this summer. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
