The parables - we know them so well. Or do we? We may think we have learnt everything they have to teach us, but in these unforgettable stories can be found some of Jesus' most powerful and challenging teaching about the nature of discipleship and the kingdom of God.
No Ordinary Stories does not set out to add anything to the words of Jesus - those stand complete in themselves. Rather, each of the 38 meditations focuses on a particular aspect of what he said and seeks to draw out its implications for our own lives.
The Meditations can be used independently to give a fresh perspective on the Bible readings and are also woven into 11 themed services for in-depth exploration of Jesus' teaching in the parables.
No Ordinary Stories was originally published under the title To put it another way.
