|The Title is Misleading Jul 10, 2006|
|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!|
|Very exhaustive Mar 19, 2003|
|All the Parables of the Bible is a tremendous resource on the parables and parabolic language of the scriptures. I have studied many books but this one seems to be one of the best. There are several things that I like most about this book. It is a precise examination going into the Old Testament and showing how that New Testament thoughts were conceived in Old Testament times. Such as Christ parable of the Vineyard being taken from wicked men. That can be found in Isaiah and Ezekial's prophecies. Mr. Lockyer is also very knowledgable presenting a rounded view from many different writers to show the variety of thought. He pulls from some of the masters such as; Ada Habershon, Arthur Pink, R.C. Trench G. Campbell Morgan and many others. The most important things is that Mr.Lockyer really reveals the clear concise idea of the Master is trying to convey. I give this a two thumbs up and tell everyone looking for a reference on the parables that this book is worth it's weight and gold!|
|Extremely Thorough Reference for Parables Sep 6, 2000|
|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.
