Bible parables taught by Jesus provide tremendous guidance and wisdom today, although for some they may be hard to relate to or difficult to understand. In Hope Refreshed those parables come alive again as easily understood, modern stories of grace, hope, and love.
Each retold parable is transformed into a relatable, contemporary story with dramatic plots and compelling characters in present-day predicaments. The Prodigal Son, The Good Samaritan and other famous parables from Jesus are reborn with their messages of wisdom in the twenty-first century.
All readers, whether you are an avid reader of Scripture or have never opened a Bible, will be captivated by the messages of hope, love, and redemption that have stood the test of time for over 2000 years!
