Six unique inspirational messages to make people think about what they've been taught. Four of the parables discuss “what could have happened next” in relation to small stories taken from scripture and extrapolated. A fifth is a creation narrative and the sixth shares how to view the Creator from the perspective of an old eastern legend. It is the Author’s wish that in sharing her stories, the reader may open their hearts to the love, joy, and hope presented in these pages.
This collection of short stories gave me pleasure, inspiration, and joy as well as thoughts to ponder. Each story is a well-written and intimate illustration of a well-known story from the Bible. Each tale focuses on an encounter that a "regular" person had with Yeshua. Because it is told from a point of view like our own, it is easy to empathize and learn from each situation. Each person follows their own "stepping stones" after their life changing encounter with the captivating Rabbi. I particularly liked the story of the rich young man and the woman with the bleeding problem. I enjoyed this because I am always looking for positive affirming stories. This would be a good gift for someone who needs encouragement or for someone who likes to learn and reflect.
