Robert J. Goluba
This is a collection of short stories that take the parables Jesus told in the Bible and make them relevant today using characters and scenes we would be familiar with. Each story stays close to the parable and uses the same type of illustrations. But the settings and characters are modern.
I enjoyed this book. It was interesting to see the similarities in the stories. It was definitely refreshing to see how the truths that Jesus talked about so long ago still apply to us now. The writing style was indicative of a new writer with a rougher flow in places and some of the characters not well flushed out. But I can see this getting better with time and the author going on to become a great Christian writer. Overall, this was a great book to read all at once or over time and will inspire and refresh the soul of anyone who picks it up.
I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
