Parables from the Pandemic: Holding onto Hope in a Hurting World

Rate this book
When a global pandemic threatens the foundation of our society, what hope for healing does a hurting world have?

Parables from the Pandemic: Holding onto Hope in a Hurting World is a collection of beautifully illustrated short stories and reflection questions. The characters we meet in Parables invite us to explore our faith in the context of themes such as regulation and revolution, community and division, surveillance and freedom, and waiting and redemption. Parables calls readers to question what defines our identity, our humanity, and our destiny. Great for individual reflection or Bible Study, Christian Living, Theology on Tap, or religious or faith-based book club groups, Parables shows us no matter what we face on this side of Heaven, the only hope worth holding onto is always by our side.

Parables is a distillation of thoughts, examples and teachings that derive from a probing mind and deep intellect that seek meaning and hope beyond the mundane daily, tired contemporary slogans. Parables searches for a higher message in today’s human events. The book is a wealth of insight that helps provide realistic hope and joy during dark times. Beyond the intellectual depth, the stories are enormously entertaining and captivating such that the reader cannot put the book down until he or she finishes Parables. The questions at the end of each parable aid in in-depth group discussion or reflection. The reading is easy, the style excellent, the writing flows. Parables is a must read for everyone seeking a deeper hope beyond the current darkness in our world. SHG, MD, PhD.

I just pre-ordered my copy of Parables. I read the manuscript and enjoyed reading each parable as each had its own flavor. Some raised questions, others brought tears and others chuckles. All the parables were created with deep insight into life, authority, relationships, community, friendship, faith and responsibility. Each parable opens the door to further discussion and exploration of ideas, and life/faith issues. I highly recommend the book for personal enjoyment and small group/book club/Bible study discussions. I am looking forward to my illustrated copy!

Parables finds hope where there seems to be only despair, grace where we mostly see pain, and love in the midst of heartache. This book speaks to everyone and is a bright light in a world that is getting dim. Galib has found a way to say so much in these short and easy to read stories that everyone should keep a copy for when they need to hear a message of redemption. Hold tight to the promises found within these pages and let them give you a glimpse into the heart of the One who is calling you to Him.

I loved Parables. My only regret is I didn't read it in a group because you just want to unpack it with your closest friends. I can't wait for Galibs next book.

Parables is a fantastic read. The author has a way of weaving stories so beautifully that they lead the reader on a wonderful journey in which he is immersed in a fictional world that creatively causes contemplation of reality, our creator, and our beliefs. This book has something for everyone - I highly recommend it.
