BA Books & Authors on the Web – January 10, 2014

Dr. David Gowler started A Chorus of Voices, a blog which chronicles his writing of a forthcoming book on the reception history of the parables.

“[T]he “meaning” of the parables does not reside alone in the creative genius of Jesus and/or the Gospel authors; it exists in a relation between creator and contemplators. We stand, therefore, on the shoulders of centuries of conversations; our own interpretations are never independent of the reception history of these parables”
