Dr. Seale explains the meaning of the parables, the outcome of his classes and lectures over a period of years. The Bible quotations are from the King James Version. Dr. Seale is an exceptional communicator and brilliant metaphysician. My extensive notes refer to mustard seed (69), pearl of great price (97), wisdom (38), negative people (42), Truth (78), evil (62), choice (153), study (238), persistence (184), skill (234). "You may have a beautiful philosophy, you may have lofty ideals, but what you will do with your philosophy and ideals is dependent entirely upon what you are inside yourself." A truly great book.
