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 analysis shows how the cultural background of Arabic and Muslim theology affects the interpretation of these parables.

Very helpful book for my prep on a Bible study on Luke but a little over the head for the "average lay person" in the introduction. Great for a seasoned student of the Bible.
