This is a collection of parabolic presentations of divine truth related in terms of human emotions. The author does not push his analogies to the breaking point (inherent in most analogies) and consequently he makes a rather good job of a difficult thing, explaining Christian doctrine in terms familiar to those who are religiously untutored. This book ought to be of value to those searching for a simple explanation of seemingly hard doctrines. It would be of special value to clergy and teachers who are looking for aid in providing useful analogies of Christian truths to those to whom they minister. Sunday school teachers ought to include this book in their libraries as a most useful supplement to their other tools. Other books by Dr. Phillips: Letters to Young Churches, Your God is Too Small, Plan Christianity.
