    Abstract

    Gospel parables exhibit a plasticity that is theologically adaptive to an extraordinary range of paradoxical foci and impetuses within Christian faith. The foci and impetuses that are here correlated with such plasticity are: the secular or common life contexts of gospel engagement by contrast to sacred demarcations of life; futurity of focus that is compellingly present and imperative; so, formation for situational decisions rather than acquired content for prescriptive ethics.
