This is another standard work on the NT parables. Note that this work is seen from a “teacher’s view point” with the first three chapters on Jesus’ use of parables as a teaching method, and another chapter on the parable as an allegory, another on interpretation of parables.

fam26 Wise advice for youth version 2.1
is a tract for helping youth to consider the wisdom and guidance of their parents.
Excerpt: Youth is a time of much energy, strength, and activity. They “get bored” very easily because they always want to go, move, have experiences, and do things (but they do not include work in these desires as a rule). To be quiet, calm, and have patience is not normal for youth. On the other hand, the “beauty” of age is its experiences and understanding (wisdom). (They have been down life’s road before and made all these mistakes themselves, in their own life.)
