Here is a collection of brilliant and poignant parables, for personal reading and public use. Each offers a penetrating insight into some aspect of the Christian faith. They include:

A CELEBRITY QUESTIONS JESUS – a variant on the Rich Young Ruler
THE LOVE AFFAIR – a young woman, whose husband has betrayed her, finds healing in the crucified Christ
THE SECRET OF LIFE – a young man finds the greatest treasure of all, but how should he speak of it?
AN ARTIST TRIES TO CREATE THE WORLD – an artist does her best, but makes a complete hash of things
AN ATHEIST TROUBLED BY HIS DOUBTS – some fun at the expense of the New Atheists, exploring how hard it can be to hold on to your lack of faith
