This book explores the intended meaning, as well as the implications and applications, of the three parables in Luke 15 (The Good Shepherd and the Lost Sheep, The Good Woman and the Lost Coin, and The Good Father and His Two Lost Sons). It reflects the author's immersion in the language, religion, and culture of the Middle East, demonstrating how meaningful the biblical text becomes when a broad background of study and analysis is permitted to illuminate the text.

Western readers will gain an array of new insights from this volume and will be fascinated by the author's nuances of interpretation. The author's analysis shows how the cultural background of Arabic and Muslim theology affects the interpretation of these parables.
 
 
What Others are Saying
Kenneth Bailey has done it again!-one of this generation's most illuminating expositors of the parables. . . . Special insights emerge, specifically from comparison with Psalm 23, rabbinic materials, and Syriac- and Arabic- Christian translations and commentaries. A poignant treatment of the radical nature of God's costly love in finding wayward sinners.
Craig L. Blomberg

Kenneth Bailey treats the reader to a fresh interpretation of the well-known parables found in Luke 15. His thesis that Luke 15 is to be understood as an expansion of Psalm 23... identifies 13 themes that Luke 15 shares with Psalm 23. Combining exegetical insight with theological sensitivity [and] a lively style, pastors and scholars alike will find it interesting, informative, and not a little entertaining.
Jack Dean Kingsbury
Professor Emeritus of Biblical Theology
