Product Description

From the Back Cover

This book is a study and analysis of the more than 250 parables in Scripture. This monumental work is not another tramp over the well-raked field of the parables found in the gospels, but a comprehensive survey of the uses of parabolic illustration and instruction in the whole of the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. Never before has this aspect of truth been combined into one volume.

About the Author

Dr. Herbert Lockyer was born in London in 1886, and held pastorates in Scotland and England for 25 years before coming to the United States in 1935. In 1937 he received the honorary Doctor of Divinity degree from Northwestern Evangelical Seminary. In 1955 he returned to England where he lived for many years. He then returned to the United States where he continued to devote time to the writing ministry until his death in November of 1984.

You need a bible to refer to. The parables are not given as written , only references are cited.
Multum in parvo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Thorough Reference for Parables 6 Sept. 2000
By bethlovesbooks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Although this may not be a ground breaking text with new and exciting theories, it is an excellent resource for anyone who wants to understand the parables of the Bible better. The book discusses parables in both the Old and New Testaments. You can look up the parable by the chapter and book that it appears in, and there is also a way to reference them by topic/subject.
I've used this commentary a lot in my Bible studies because it is very thorough and even handed. Lockyer breaks the parables down item-by-item, point-by-point, then summarizes the dominant critical interpretations of each one. Because his treatment is extensive, the commentary for a single parable will often run for several pages.
I appreciate the clarity that his summaries bring to the text. Also, he is careful to admit that we can over interpret things and for the most part, manages to avoid this tendency. He asserts his own interpretation for each parable, but not in a know-it-all fashion.
This book challenges me to think about what God wants us to learn through these stories. They are like little puzzles, and I am fascinated to think about all the different ways they can be interpreted. Also, this book has cleared up some parables that were downright confusing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not my cup of tea... 20 Nov. 2008
By Joseph Arechiga - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book seems a little too literal and not spiritually revealing for my liking. Many Parables contain spiritual mysteries which I hoped would be explained simply. But this book doesn't bring those out. Instead it relates a lot of literal teachings to other scriptural concepts and that wasn't helpful to me.

Here's an example.

The Pearl

From my understanding "the Pearl" represents something beautiful created by something ugly through a lifetime of suffering. Like overcoming Christians or the Bride. Since the gates of the Kingdom of God in Revelation are 12 huge Pearls one for each gate it means that one enters into communion with God through much suffering and that agrees with scripture.

But the book explains it like this:
"The Pearl reveals God's ultimate victory in the presence of man's failure. As we shall see, when considering the parable in detail, the One who purchased the Pearl discloses "the glorious transmuting of the murderous hate of sinful humanity into redemption by the love of God."

What that means I have no idea but it sounds good.

I might have gained more from this book if I were a PHD I suspect.

Everyone else seems to like it though. So maybe it's just me.

5.0 out of 5 stars more than you know 17 April 2012
By M. Dargie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found All the Parables of the Bible very fascinating and very imformative. It helps to disclose thoughts and ideas about scriptures that have been puzzling for a long time to me. There are parables that I never knew were in the Bible before. I recommend this book to anyone that is interested in searching the scriptures for symbols and metaphors of the things you dream, which is why I bought the book, that this book fills in a lot of the gaps that I was unable to have my mind open to; and to put into perspective some of the things that have been revealed to me in my dreams.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Title is Misleading 10 July 2006
By Tony Bernhoffer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is actually a very useful book for the study of Bible prophecy. It contains scholarly explanations for the imagery of many of the Bible prophets. I had seen it offered from another dealer for $1.98 as an introduction to Lockyer's "All" series. I had passed it by many times thinking it was just an expositon of the parables of Jesus Christ. But I did find it very useful in my study of Ezekiel as many of Ezekiel's prophecies are consdered "parables" by Lockyer. A really great book!
