“Whether you know discouragement and despair from living in difficult places, or are dissatisfied with the church at home, read this book. You will hear Jesus afresh.”Canadian Baptists of Western Canada

Gordon W. King’s book, Seed Falling on Good Soil is a must-read when it comes to a critical understanding of social justice issues of our own age, through a historically informed approach to the Lucan parables. King is a CBM Resource Specialist, and was the Director of Relief and Development at CBM, along with his experience with World Vision and the Canadian government’s Immigration and Refugee Board.

The book uses stories from the margins of our current world to connect the message of the parables with global issues of poverty, ethnic violence, gender discrimination, hunger and oppression. This book will appeal to people who long for the healing of a wounded world.
