Tell It Slant : A Conversation on the Language of Jesus in His Stories and Prayers
by Eugene Peterson




Overview -
The fourth volume in Peterson's best-selling conversations in spiritual theology

Just as God used words both to create the world and to give us commandments, we too use words for many different purposes. In fact, we use the same language to talk to each other and to talk to God. Can our everyday speech, then, be just as important as the words and prayers we hear from the pulpit? Eugene Peterson unequivocally says Yes

Peterson's Tell It Slant explores how Jesus used language, particularly in his parables and prayers. His was not a direct language of information or instruction but an indirect, oblique language requiring a participating imagination -- slant language. Tell It Slant beautifully points to Jesus' engaging, relational way of speaking as a model for us today.
