- Parables of Grace by Robert Farrar Capon!
What a disservice, not only to itself but to a world perpetually sinking in the quagmire of religiosity, when it harps on creed, cult, and conduct as the touchstones of salvation. What a perversion of the truth that sets us free John 8: And just one more: Dec 26, Nathan rated it really liked it Shelves: Although this was the second of Robert Farrar Capon's outstanding trilogy on the parables of Jesus, I read it last. It was excellent and the three books from the Episcopal Priest are the best I've ever read on the parables - indeed, some of the best books I've ever read.
His writing style is so enjoyable, relaxed and earnest at the same time.
However, I couldn't quite bring myself to give this book the full five stars like I did the other two. In all three, Capon admittedly stretches some interpr Although this was the second of Robert Farrar Capon's outstanding trilogy on the parables of Jesus, I read it last.
Grace in the Parables
In all three, Capon admittedly stretches some interpretations of the parables and it was only in this book that I felt he was unquestionably off-target on a couple. His exegesis never led to anything heterodox, but by trying to fit a third of Jesus' parables into his reading of grace - a focus on the lost, the least, the little and the dead - I think he missed an intended message or two hidden in these stories. But like the other two books, Parables of the Kingdom and The Parables of Judgment , the writing is excellent, the insights are profound and experience is delightful.
Dec 30, A. Burgess rated it it was amazing. I'm rereading this series of 3 books on the parables. It's not casual reading, you really have to follow his concepts closely to not get lost, but even the second time, it opens up new insights into the parables and Jesus' message. This particular volume is very comforting in repetitively reassuring us of the grace of God.

Sep 08, Milton Brasher-Cunningham rated it really liked it. Capon is someone who likes to use biblical interpretation to challenge, surprise, and encourage readers to take seriously the profligate love of our untamed God--and he does that here as well with provocative looks at some of Jesus's parables.

The Parables of Grace. Description In his highly-readable manner, Capon discusses Jesus' parables told between the feeding of the five thousand and the triumphal entry into Jerusalem. His ability to bridge the gap between then and now makes clear both the original meaning and the modern-day relevance of these parables.
