"Few of us remember all of Jesus' parables; it seems each time I read The New Testament, it's a matter of rediscovery. I'll come upon a certain parable and find it has new meaning and relevance to my life. That's why I thought I would gather several parables together in one image and create an opportunity for viewers to recall and share them. I worked closely with my friend Robert Millet, Dean of Religious Studies at Brigham Young University, in selecting these twelve, and we feel that each conveys a special aspect of Jesus' teachings. Visually, the work is a montage inspired by paintings of the Early Northern Renaissance, where perspective tended to be subordinate to a story. I always hope my work fosters not only contemplation and personal reflection, but also a sharing of experiences. I'd be delighted if this print inspired you to talk about these stories with your children or grandchildren." -James Christensen
