Inexhaustible New York Times best-selling author Lucado (God's Story, Your Story: When His Becomes Yours) presents another work fleshing out popular biblical parables. The contemporary tone applied to the theme of redemption through God's forgiveness helps listeners easily relate these stories to the modern world. Narrator Wayne Shepherd does a convincing presentation of the hope and optimism dominant in the text. A corresponding PDF file is included on the final CD-each of the 23 chapters has a "Questions for Reflection and Discussion" page that provides thought-provoking queries exploring the significance of the parables. -VERDICT Recommended for all fans of Lucado and other popular interpretations of the Bible, with a caveat regarding the lengthy tracks, which range between seven and 17 minutes.-Deb West, Gannon Univ.
