The Bible contains two kinds of parables: those that have a clear meaning, and those that are ambiguous. In this, his second book of modern parables, author James (Jim) Taylor has chosen to write the latter kind. Instead of explaining his parables, he invites the reader to reflect on how his stories speak to them.

A master at finding God in ordinary life, Jim offers these 'parables without explanation' as an opportunity for the reader to draw closer to God. And so he writes about horses and dogs and pears to remind us that God speaks to us through the world around us and in everything we do. In this way 'More Everyday Parables' re-enacts Jesus' own method of teaching.

For individual and group use, each story is linked to a biblical passage and a 'musing' by the author.
