Quick Overview

"They say that we're all ignorant-just on different subjects. You may be a walking encyclopedia about computers, but know basically nothing about what's under the hood of your car. Someone else may be on airplanes who knows zilch about brain surgery.

What a great help it is when someone begins explaining something we know nothing about with, begin explaining something we know nothing about with, "A computer (a carburetor, a jet, the human brain) is like"

Relating the unknown to the known is the genius of parable. When Jesus had to get across abstract concepts like faith and love and the kingdom of heaven, that's exactly what He did. "The kingdom of heaven is like" He would say, and another parable was on its way. People couldn't get enough of them.

Because they bring heaven a little closer to earth, people still love parables today, as Pastor Morris Venden has discovered wherever he's preached. Those who have heard the modern parables he shares in his sermons are constantly asking him for copies, which he has now gathered into this book.

The parables inside? Well, they're like
Then again, why not just read them yourself?"

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY:

Morris L. Venden


MORRIS VENDEN graduated from Pacific Union College and spent many years in pastoral ministry. After his retirement in 1988, Venden joined the Voice of Prophecy team as an associate speaker. A highly sought after speaker, both nationally and internationally, Venden was known as a master of the art of preaching and a strong advocate of both justification and sanctification by faith alone. He wrote more than 30 books about Jesus, including 95 Theses on Righteousness by Faith, How to Know God's Will in Your Life, Love God and Do as You Please, Never Without an Intercessor, and Miracle of Conversion. Venden passed to his rest on February 10, 2013, at the age of 80.
