New Books From Jerry Schmalenberger

The Parables of Jesus and Their Flip Side  -  a companion book to his Miracles book. Twelve of Jesus' Parables are examined not only from their traditional teaching but also from the other side of the story. For example, in addition to warning about the dangers of building on sand instead of rock the author considers how to rebuild after the flood.

CSS Publishers claim: "Schmalenberger's punch, contemporary language, and narrative style produce hard-hitting and inspirational messages that offer a unique new twist in the interpretation of some old and marvelous gospel teachings."
