There are many books about the parables but this one, which shows wide reading and a full acquaintance with recent scholarship, will certainly be as the author hopes, of real service to students and teachers. It is indeed admirably done. Dr Martin expounds very clearly the background of each parable and its immediate purpose, and when he turns to discuss its application to modern conditions, does so with considerable insight and a vivid sense of their application to the ethical problems with which most of the modern world is concerned. Originally published in 1937.
