In his parables and prayers, Jesus connected with his listeners by speaking metaphorically in the earthy vernacular of the day. This companion study guide to Peterson's best-selling book will help you do the same! Each session includes a lesson summary, list of key adjectives, quotations to consider, and discussion questions to help you delve deeper into Jesus' teachings. Work through it on your own, or grab a group of friends who are willing to grow along with you as you learn to Tell it Slant!
Eugene H. Peterson is professor emeritus of spiritual theology at Regent College, Vancouver, British Columbia. Among his many books are Eat This Book, Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places, The Contemplative Pastor, Subversive Spirituality, Take and Read, Under the Unpredictable Plant, and Working the Angles.
Peter Santucci, a former student and teaching assistant of Petersons, is pastor of First Presbyterian Church, Lebanon, Oregon.
If books were priced according to the linguistic care with which their sentences were assembled, Tell It Slant would be priceless. Eugene Peterson strikes forcefully at theological abstraction and sentimental godtalk, offering a provocative treatise on the conversational giftedness of Jesus. . . . A compendium of marvelous insights for rethinking our own expressions of faith. Peter W. Marty Grace Matters Radio
The fourth part of Petersons momentous work on spiritual theology provides an intimate look at the language of Jesus and how that should translate to our everyday speech.
This helpful study guide is designed to enable small groups in schools or churches or even individuals to delve deeper into the timely wisdom of Tell It Slant. Petersons discussion is here broken up into twenty sessions, each of which contains a summary, quotations to consider, questions for interaction, and a suggested activity, ending with prayer.
