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. Lockyer offers not only profound insights on the well-known parables of Jesus, but he also explores in depth the parables of the prophet Balaam, the prophet Isaiah's parable of the vineyard, Paul the apostle's use of military and athletic metaphors, the lush imagery of Revelation, and numerous other Old and New Testament parables.
