I was surprised to learn that the author was a universalist. But when that was defined on Wikipedia as someone who believes everyone is going to heaven because Jesus died for the sins of the whole world then it made more sense. He is also big on kingdom theology meaning that the church is able to bring God's kingdom to earth by their good works instead of the church being the kingdom of God on earth and waiting for it's complete fulfillment when Christ returns.

Anyway, enough background. I think Capon really nails what Jesus is getting at in the parables - that His kingdom will not be an earthly glorious kingdom but one that is yet to come. I think I will have to buy this book because it's taken me too long to read so far and I had to take it back... watch this space.
