Exploring Parables in Luke

Integrated Skills for ESL/EFL Students of Theology

£16.99

It is no easy task to move from a general proficiency in English to navigating the specialized English so often used in theological resources. In addition to linguistic challenges, theology students with English as a second language encounter difficult concepts and different ways of thinking. In response, Exploring Parables in Luke aims to help such students engage with theological literature more effectively. Chapter by chapter, as students work through the theologically rich explorations of Jesus’ parables, they will grow in their proficiency of both English and theology. As a result, students will not only have a greater ability to access English language theological libraries, but also contribute to them.
