This article introduces and translates the product of a “pious and acceptable preacher of St. Gertrude’s church in Berlin,” the “Treatise on the Parables of our Lord” by Rev. Frederick Gustavus Lisco. The reviewer marks the straight-foreword approach the author takes as opposed to the more stylish form of his contemporaries. The treatise is separated into seven sections: “The Name and Import of the Parable,” “The Antiquity of Parables,” “The Relation of the Parable to the Visible and the Invisible World,” “The Reason Why the Parabolic Method was Employed by Christ,” “The Perfection of our Lord’s Parables,” “The Contents of the Parables,” and “The Interpretation of the Parables.” The text is a combination of text and quotations from other sources on the subject of parables.
