Reverend Howard Long

Hello, I am Rev. Howard Long and I am the Superintendent of the Swansea and Gower Circuit, with pastoral responsibility for the Mumbles Methodist Church and for Wesley Methodist Church in Brynhyfryd.

Why not spend a few minutes looking at the exciting work that is happening in Mumbles with the Open Door Project?

The Parables of Jesus


The Parables of Jesus – Rev. Howard Long's first book

Limited Edition printed by Gwasg Dinefwr Press.

Price £9.95
P&P £1.95 UK

One third of Jesus’ recorded teaching in the New Testament is in parables. They were his chosen method to communicate the great truths of the Kingdom of God.

Simple stories of farmers, shepherds, vineyard workers, servants and rich merchants have spoken to generations throughout history as have tales about fishing, wine, banquets, mustard seeds and hidden treasure. The parables hold such fascination for people today not only because they are great stories but because of the one who told them. Discovering the message behind the story is one thing, discovering the nature of the storyteller and what it means for our lives is quite another.

This book begins by looking at Jesus and the message of the Kingdom of God. It looks at each parable not only in its original historical context but also helps us see how Jesus Christ’s words speak to us today.
