Parable of the Sower is a dystopian classic of terror and hope-the story of an African American teenage girl trying to survive in an all-too-real future-from the "grand dame" of science fiction, Octavia E. Butler. When unattended environmental and economic crises lead to social chaos, not even gated communities are safe. In a night of fire and death, Lauren Olamina, an empath and the daughter of a minister, loses her family and home and ventures out into the unprotected American landscape. But what begins as a flight for survival soon leads to something much more: a startling vision of human destiny...and the birth of a new faith, as Lauren becomes a prophet carrying the hope of a new world and a revoltionary idea christened "Earthseed". Chilling and thought-provoking for adult and young adult readers alike, "...there isn't a page in this vivid and frightening story that fails to grip the reader" (San Jose Mercury News). *Includes reading group guide

The Nebula Award–winning author of Kindred presents a “gripping” dystopian novel about a woman fleeing Los Angeles as America spirals into chaos (The New York Times Book Review). Lauren Olamina and her family live in one of the only safe neighborhoods remaining on the outskirts of Los Angeles. Behind the walls of their defended enclave, Lauren’s father, a preacher, and a handful of other citizens try to salvage what remains of a culture that has been destroyed by drugs, war, and chronic shortages of water, gasoline, and more. While her father tries to lead people on the righteous path, Lauren struggles with hyperempathy, a condition that makes her extraordinarily sensitive to the pain of others. When fire destroys their compound, Lauren’s family is killed and she is forced out into a world that is facing apocalypse. With a handful of other refugees, Lauren must make her way north to safety, along the way conceiving a revolutionary idea that may mean salvation for all mankind. From a recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship who has won multiple Nebula and Hugo Awards, this iconic novel is “a gripping tale of survival and a poignant account of growing up sane in a disintegrating world” (The New York Times Book Review). This ebook features an illustrated biography of Octavia E. Butler including rare images from the author’s estate.

This parable should really be entitled "The Parable of the Soil", because the story, and the truths emphasized therein, do not focus on the one sowing seed. The focus of the story is about the soil. It's about dirt. In Matthew 13, Jesus taught how the hearts of people can differ regarding openness, or receptiveness, to God's Word. And who knows the hearts of mankind better than the Creator/Carpenter? He has the dirt on all of us!

And he said to them, ‘Follow me’. When Jesus called upon Matthew, as he sat in his office where he collected customs duty, Matthew got up and followed him and left everything behind him except one thing – his pen. Matthew was to become the great chronicler of Christ’s life and teachings and, though it is now widely accepted that he did not write the gospel itself, the influence of Matthew’s record is undeniably felt throughout. This first volume of William Barclay’s thoughtful study of the Gospel of Matthew brings startling insights into Jesus’ early life and teaching. Journey with Barclay and re-discover the baptism of Jesus, the Sermon on the Mount and the challenges of discipleship. William Barclay's world-renowned down-to-earth New Daily Study Bible commentaries - including his own translations of the New Testament texts - have inspired millions of people across the generations 'to know better their Bible, their God and their Saviour'.

Seeding the Heart studies Jesus account of The Parable of the Sower and its relationship to the hearts of men. The book provides commentary on Jesus description and interpretation of the various soils mentioned in his parable. Each soil represents a particular condition of mans heart in response to the word of God as typified by the planted seed. The soils of the parable are the wayside, the stony, the thorns and the good ground. The author uses each soil to illustrate both Jesus explanation of the parable and the spiritual condition of the modern Christian. The way side represents the indifferent Christian, the stony the unstable Christian, the thorny as the worldly Christian and the good as the fruitful Christian. Pertinent issues that affect Christians of today are noted in each aspect of given parable. Also included is a related chapter on the sowing and reaping principle with Biblical examples to help understand the consequences of mans actions to Divine truth.
