Meditations on the Parables of Jesus

Fr. Thomas Keating, the internationally-known Centering Prayer teacher, unlocks the radical, transformative power of the parables, bringing the significance of Jesus's message to our lives. Keating's spiritual depth and cultural understanding inform the parables and articulate an original, compelling vision of Jesus's teachings.

In Meditations on the Parables of Jesus, Thomas Keating, beloved spiritual director and cofounder of the Centering Prayer movement, delves into the core of the stories with fascinating and sometimes surprising results.
