Glen, I apologize for the misunderstanding you had concerning my Handbook of Jesus Parables. It is indeed a compilation, with no exposition and no reference material, other than God's Holy Spirit which guided my hand in all my writings. The purpose of the book is to present to the modern reader instant access to Jesus' Parables in a fresh light, with quote marks, sentences, and paragraphs in a highly structure presentation that the reader can carry in his back pocket or purse. You may not realize this, but the United States government has presented me with the only copyright ever granted to an explorer of the Parables. Many have tried, all have failed, with the exception of myself. In fact, the President of the copyright office personally called me to congratulate me on the accomplishment. I went to the original Koine Greek to achieve this monumental task. By staying away from false interpretations, and relying on God's blessing and voice, I came to the realization of what I had to do to encapsulate Jesus' words away from all the interpolations bounding his work in misrepresentaion. In this perfect Handbook, the reader will gain the cleanest and most honest renderings of Jesus illustrations. For that I am very proud. Readers often look into a mirror and never see the truth due to the cloudy edges. That is why I ventured on my handbook: to remove the fog of too many things. However, to pursue this just a bit further and possibly of interest to you and perhaps others, I have been writing an interpretation of Jesus' parables. It is quite a wonderful book. Like all my other writings, it promises to be unique with an intensity of truth in each page. As I have so often said, this Handbook is the right companion to sit alongside the Bible as is my Jesus of the Four Gospels. As soon as I can I will present to the world a truthful interpretation of Jesus' Parables with all the exciting things of history that brought about Jesus' words to the world.

The word "Handbook" in the title is misleading. This book is simply a compilation of the parables. Other than a skimpy glossary of terms, there is NO reference material, NO explanatory notes, NO exposition, NO background information, NO context and NO insight into the parables. If you just want to read the parables, save the $3.99 and read the parables in your own Bible.
