I have mainly bought this book for use at school to help deliver the QCA unit for 'Stories that Jesus told - why did he tell them?', in a KS1 class. I am over the moon with it! The pictures are stunning. There is a introductory passage to help 'set' the parable and a concluding passage to help focus in on the reason Jesus told the story, e.g. forgiveness by the father of the prodigal son - still relevant to issues in the plaground today at any school. Yes I could have found the parables in a Bible BUT what a find for anyone who wants to focus on the parables. We have made a whole-class book of the children's drawings on each parable - the children bring their parents to look at the book at the end of the day. (PS there's a book by the same author on 'Miracles' !!!)- it's also as good.
