2017 CATHOLIC PRESS ASSOCIATION BOOK AWARD WINNER! – SCRIPTURE (Popular)

Not just a retelling of the familiar stories Jesus used to teach about the reign of God, William J. O'Malley gives the characters names, flesh, and story details and presents them in a contemporary voice with spiritual understandings that are as compelling now as they were then. As a result they are longer than the typical parable and can be used for children's homilies, sermons, class lessons, and other illustrative occasions.

Among the parables whose mysterious meanings unfold are The Kindly Outcast, The Spendthrift's Father, The Dutiful Son, The Great Banquet, The Feisty Widow, The Big-Hearted Grape Grower, The Timid Apprentice, The Crafty Steward, The Hidden Treasure, and many more.

William J. O’Malley, S.J., taught for many years and has published many award winning books on spirituality, including Holiness, Help My Unbelief, The Week That Opened Forever, and You’ll Never Be Younger.
