The Scandal of the Kingdom Workbook: How the Parables of Jesus Revolutionize Life with God

What does it mean to live in the kingdom of God in our day-to-day lives? 

Drawn from previously unpublished material of the late beloved author Dallas Willard, The Scandal of the Kingdom offers fresh insight into the moving and mysterious parables Jesus told. In this companion workbook, go deeper into each parable, unlocking the heart of Jesus’s key parables, why Jesus chose story to communicate life’s deepest truths, and how these stories are still revolutionary (and even shocking) in showing us how to live out God’s kingdom on earth today. 

 A runaway son. A woman’s frantic search for a coin. A farmer paying hired help. Jesus relied on ordinary situations to communicate the most extraordinary truths about following him. Even the disciples weren’t always sure what these parables meant. Yet it was through story that Jesus communicated at the most intimate level of human emotion. 

 For all of us who wonder how to love passionately, live abundantly, and grow in faith, the secrets that Jesus hid in plain sight in these simple stories have the power to usher us into a new, dynamic way of being human. Explore the heart of Jesus’ kingdom-focused parables and how these stories told two thousand years ago are still revolutionary today.
