A hurricane howls towards a house built on sand. A nighttime intruder creeps onto enemy land. A boy leaves home to seek adventure. Robbers menace a lonely traveler. And the unexpected happens.

This new and innovative graphic novel translation puts a modern twist on an ancient art form. The parables of Jesus begin with mundane events and end with a glimpse of a deeper reality; Earnest Graham’s illustrations, ranging in style from West African kente and Japanese prints to vivid modern realism, interpret these well-loved stories for the next generation of readers.
