Meet Jesus before he started attracting crowds.
The parables are some of the most influential and well-known stories in history, and the books of Kenny Kemp illuminate these timeless tales with an entirely new approach. In this book, with a style as simple and elegant as the parables themselves, he reintroduces three of the most famous of these celebrated stories: the prodigal son, the talents, and the good Samaritan, setting them as part of the formative experiences of the young man Jeshua bar Joseph, whom we know today as Jesus of Nazareth.

THE WELCOMING DOOR is the first volume in the "Parables of the Carpenter" series. It is followed by THE CARPENTER OF GALILEE, an illustrated version of the parable of the prodigal son, and CITY ON A HILL, which continues Kemp's illumination of two more famous parables: the unjust judge and the importunate widow.

These remarkable stories will enrich your knowledge not only of the time and place where these famous parables were told, but of the unique character and power of Jesus of Nazareth in a way you have never imagined before.
