One Hundred Wisdom Stories from around the World
Review by Karen Ball on 2005-06-16
Jesus told his parables within the context of a rich tradition of wisdom stories from throughout the Middle East. Now Margaret Silf has gathered 100 stories from around the world. Although they come from many different cultures (and religious traditions), they all speak to universal questions: who are we, where do we come from, how are we to live with one another, how do we cope with our joys and our crises. If your pastor needs to expand her repertoire of sermon illustrations, this would make a wonderful addition to her library.
