As New Condition
'Moving from parables by Jesus to parables about Jesus, Crossan then presents the four gospels as "megaparables". By revealing how the gospels are not reflections of the actual biography of Jesus but rather (mis)interpretations by the gospel writers themselves. Crossan reaffirms the power of parables to challenge and enable us to co-create with God a world of justice, love and peace.'
