As long as the world lasts, the parables will call people to faith in Christ. Their very simplicity shines brightly with the gracious invitation to repent, to believe, and to be reconciled to God, through the same Jesus who first uttered them so long ago. In this contemporary study, Gordon Keddie seeks to retain the essential simplicity of the parables by the lightest touch of exposition, allowing them to live and move and touch our being with a vibrant immediacy and unmistakable clarity. Gordon J. Keddie was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, and was educated at George Heriot's School, the Universities of Aberdeen and Edinburgh, and at the Westminster (Philadelphia) and Reformed Presbyterian (Pittsburgh) Theological Seminaries in the USA. Until his retirement in 2014 after forty years of ministry, he served pastorates in Pittsburgh, Wishaw (Scotland), State College (PA), and Indianapolis, where he presently resides. He is the author of many popular commentaries on Bible books and themes and a writer of numerous articles, both popular and academic. He is married to Jane, and they have three grown sons and three grandchildren.
