George King
great Collection of short stories/fables/ spiritual up-lifting. My NEW FAVORITE AUTHOR
A precious book of 22 parables - presented as stories told by a tattoo artist in the city if Jerusalem to distract someone getting a tattoo from the pain.

Very engaging.

They nurture anyone on a spiritual quest and belong in that genre.

A keeper for me.

A bit of a curate's egg. Some really good moments, and some eye-rolling ones. I would give it 3.5 stars if I could, but definitely not 4.
An interesting collection of parables can be reread and offer additional insight. There is a feeling of manipulation in some.
Another enjoyable books by Edward Hays. He has a way with parables that just makes them a pleasure to read.
An extraordinary teaching tool offering unique insight into faithing and discipleship.
