"Bernard Brandon Scott's Hear Then the Parable is a superb synthesis of where we have come from in terms of literary analysis and where we are going in terms of social analysis."
John Dominic Crossan, DePaul University
" Hear Then the Parable is the most comprehensive study of the parables in half a century. Scott's reading of the parables is filled with flashes of brilliant insight. Everyone who interprets the parablesin pulpit, classroom, or personal studywill want to own the book."
David Buttrick, The Divinity School, Vanderbilt University
