Glory Veiled and Unveiled by Gerald M. Bilkes – available now!

01 Jan

Publisher’s Description:

“You have likely read the parables of Christ before, perhaps many times. But have they read you?” With this thought-provoking question, author Gerald Bilkes introduces readers to the concept of interpreting the Scriptures experimentally as he takes a heart-searching look at Christ’s parables. In this spiritually rewarding Bible study, the author shows students of Scripture how to read the parables in a way that takes into account the truth that Scripture searches us as we subject ourselves to it. When we recognize this, we can expect Scripture to transform us. An ideal tool for personal or group Bible study, with questions following each lesson, Glory Veiled and Unveiled considers the contexts and main messages of twenty-five parables and puts our hearts under the “searchlight” of Scripture, guiding us into the knowledge of Christ, our gracious and glorious king.

Rob’s blog Endorsement:

In this book, Dr. Bilkes masterfully expounds and applies some of our Lord’s most well loved parables.  In this volume, the author encourages the reader to approach the parables experimentally.  That is, he calls us to read them with the purpose of having their truths challenge and change us.  Written for both laypeople and pastors, this resource deserves wide circulation.  Among the several books that I have on the parables, this volume ranks among the finest!

Derek Thomas’s Endorsement:

We have come to expect good things from Dr. Bilkes, and in Glory Veiled and Unveiled we are not disappointed. He has given us a marvelous exposition of the parables, revealing astute awareness of the subtleties of the genre and a keen eye for their current application. With pointed questions, each chapter is designed for use in personal and corporate Bible study. Individuals and churches will profit enormously from this book.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this topic to be actually something that I think
    I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad
    for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get
    the hang of it!
