More Parables for Plain People
Observations of FooFoo the Wise
About the Book
More Parables for Plain People—Observations of FooFoo the Wise follows in the same vein as Jack Worrill’s first book, Parables for Plain People, which was well received and, according to some reports, placed him in the top 10 percent of self-published authors. Once again he shares his opinions and insights—some wise and some witty—all with a focus on their possible spiritual significance when applied to one’s daily life.
Jack’s writings are drawn from his experience as an advertising executive, Sunday school teacher, furniture craftsman, music minister, and observer of human nature. In More Parables, he offers ninety-one fresh, new, inspirational readings on topics from “The Magic Feather” to “The Upraised Thumb,” with stops in between at such subjects as “The Beggar Lice,” “The Delusionist,” and “The Sardines and Soda Crackers.”
About the Author
Each parable is brief but packed with discernment and occasional humor, and most readers find it hard to stop reading after only one or two. This is just the book for you if you need encouragement in times of difficulty, stress, or troubles. Many turn to it for comfort in times of sadness and grief. Some have even found it to be a rich resource for devotional talks and readings. You’ll find your own favorite parables and uses and may find yourself reading it over and over for new revelations.
Jack’s first wife, Lyn, whose name appears in several of these parables, was taken by colon cancer in January, 2010, after a determined three-year battle. In a way that only the Lord could have devised, Jack was brought together with Joyce Smith of Knoxville, Tennessee, and they were married nearly three years later. They now reside in Marietta, Georgia, near his three married daughters, eight grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. Joyce has two married sons and five grandchildren.
