False Expectations

H.B. Dehqani-Tafti

A Book of three stories in Persian Verse. The first imagines the Prodigal Son who, once he has returned home, experiences dissatisfaction and desires to leave. The Steward of the house explores the true nature of following which challenges the son’s false expectations. The story seeks to address the intellectual and emotional difficulties faced by Christian believers. The second deals with the action and reaction of nature, humans and God in tragic events such as the Tsunami. Finally there is a revision of “The Story of God and Man” setting out God’s revelation to the world through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Two new incidents, the healing of the woman with a haemorrhage and the parable of the vineyard have been included.
