"In Tales of the City of God, Carlos Valles gleans parables from all times and cultures for consideration by contemporary readers. One catches here echoes of the master author of biblical examples: "Those who have ears, let them hear." Valles's fables are drawn from both Eastern and Western traditions, and each is complemented by Valles's thoughts and reflections. Readers may find some of the names and places in these stories foreign, but the human weaknesses and troubles will be familiar to all. Throughout Tales of the city of God, Valles uses his life experience and wisdom to focus our reading of these fables and to help guide us in self-reflection."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
