"Bernard Brandon Scott's Hear Then the Parable is a superb synthesis of where we have come from in terms of literary analysis and where we are going in terms of social analysis."
— John Dominic Crossan, DePaul University
"Hear Then the Parable is the most comprehensive study of the parables in half a century. Scott's reading of the parables is filled with flashes of brilliant insight. Everyone who interprets the parables—in pulpit, classroom, or personal study—will want to own the book."
— David Buttrick, The Divinity School, Vanderbilt University
