Part 1 uses examples from the parables and classic parable interpretations to show how analogies work, and it compares these kinds of analogies with nonbiblical texts, from comic strips to Shakespeare. Part 2 gives readers practice in interpreting, to help them see how each parable might work. Part 3 continues the practical aspect in dealing with factors external to the text.
