Buttrick believes that preaching the parables should be exciting work, and to that end he focuses on related theological issues and homiletical strategy. He first provides an introduction to the parables and a discussion of particular homiletical issues preachers face in interpreting parables, designing sermons, and choosing illustrations. He then provides commentary on thirty-three different parables and makes suggestions for preaching each one.
