dc.description.abstractThe preface and back cover bring up fables when each says The use of fables, allegories and parables is, of course, older [preface: `more ancient'] than Aesop. This is in fact a collection of pieces, in a great variety of genres, written from a theological perspective and set within a Biblical context (x). Only one, the first, is referred to as a fable, Christy's Very, Very, Special Secret (1), indeed as a fable of the incarnation. I find it rather a parable--but, like several of the pieces here, well done. The genres include epic nursery rhyme, litany, melodrama, and parable. Examples of good parables are O'Patrick the 'Possum That Played Alive (19), Home At Last (41), and Mister T (83). I am delighted to have been introduced to this book.en_US
