Famous Bible parables like The Good Samaritan and Prodigal Son offer powerful messages of hope, love, and wisdom that can benefit our lives today.
Hope Refreshed brings six parables back to life again as they are retold as relatable, modern stories.
The plots are the same, yet each parable is transformed into a contemporary short story with dramatic plots and compelling characters in present-day predicaments. Each retold parable still delivers their messages of wisdom in the twenty-first century!
If you’re not familiar with these parables that’s okay, the stories were written with you in mind. Each retelling is entertaining, and the message in the parable is easily understood. If the parables are already familiar to you, the retelling will also entertain and reinvigorate your understanding of the messages that Jesus delivered two thousand years ago. All readers will appreciate the messages of grace, love hope, and redemption that have stood the test of time.

Brian sued her to keep the money, and he won. I don’t know how much lower someone can get than suing a poor old widow!”
