Review

Lloyd John Ogilvie cares as much as anyone I know about whether people know the God who passionately loves them. His life and ministry have been dedicated to this calling and hope. His latest book gives us yet another window into this life-changing grace of God. It is God’s story and God’s story transforms our story.
- Mark Labberton, President of Fuller Theological Seminary, Director of the Lloyd John Ogilvie Institute of Preaching at Fuller


Do you want to change your life? Are you open to developing a closer relationship with Jesus? Dr. Ogilvie led a of group of senators in our Senate Bible Study Group through these parables. My life began anew as a result. Yours can too!
- Connie Mack III, Former U. S. Senator


Allow Dr. Ogilvie to act as an usher and lead you to a front row seat into the presence of Jesus, the master storyteller—and there, find your story in the stories He tells.
- Dr. Kenneth C. Ulmer, Senior Pastor, Faithful Central Bible Church

Format: Paperback
I must confess, I have actually borrowed portions of this text for public presentations. This as a very practical, creative and unique look at the parables of the New Testament, by one of the worlds most effective preachers. It is a must read and a delight. I am only sorry that Lloyd John Ogilvie is an old man and that there may be no one to fill his shoes.... He has been a bright light for many.

This book opens up the parables within context of the time & culture. I have to agree with Ogilvie that God reveals His heart to us through the parables. In my opinion, if you want to fall more in love with God as revealed through Jesus in the telling of the parables, this book is for you. An updated version, "The Heart Of God" is taken from this book & broke up into daily devotionals.

Have had this book for years. It's wonderful! It is the kind of book you can read cover to cover, or chapter (each parable) in any order. I shared mine with a friend and needed a new one cuz it is the kind you want to have on hand, pick up and put down....... Was so pleased to find it on Amazon! I feel as though everyone who loves God should have a copy! THe love of the Father as told by His Son through various parables is so very lovely. The author (Lloyd Ogilvie) takes the reader back to the time of the Lord's teachings, the culture of the times, the knowledge of scripture in the lives of Jesus's followers and those he was addressing in parable form. Ogilvie does this in such a smooth non text-book way and his love of God is woven in and out of every chapter, all with the central theme of "Jesus is saying, 'I was sent to show you the love of the Father, His true nature and how He is concerned with all aspects of your (our) lives'." Buy this book, you will be glad you did!

Ogilvie does a nice, thoughtful, job of helping us to see God the Father more clearly by delving into the parables that Jesus told. Insightful and well written it is worth reading. Although each chapter may be a little long to read as a devotional each day, that's how I used it and benefited from it.

There is nothing in the Amazon product review that states this is a republication of the same book that was published many years ago. I assumed it was a new book as it had a 2013 publish date and no comments about the product being previously published. That being said, it is a good book.

The writer brings God's message to all of mankind by showing God's nature as revealed in Jesus' parables. Written for Christians and pre-Christians alike.
