Item Description...
In this work, Peterson explores how Jesus used language--he was earthy, not abstract; metaphorical, not dogmatic. "Tell It Slant" promises to deepen Christians' understanding of Jesus' words, strengthen their awareness, and nurture their efforts to make all speech a blessing.

Be Prepared to Be Touched and Changed  May 8, 2010
You cannot read anything by Eugene Peterson and not be touched and changed by your reading. Especially, applying his teaching on "spiritual reading" to his other works. Of the books in this series, THIS was my favorite. The last section of the book on entering/praying the prayers of Jesus is wonderful and worth the price of the book by itself. As Pastor Peterson unfolded the prayers of Jesus, I could not help but be transported into the various scenarios that occasioned each prayer. Then, I could not help but feel the presence of Christ as He entered my scenarios. It is an amazing exchange, an amazing experience, and one that drives me to want to be a better Christian. I know that, in myself, I cannot be. But, in HIM, I can and will be.

Thank you Pastor Peterson.
Message Bible is fantastic; his other books are not  Dec 19, 2009
I looked through it, and sent it back.
Nowhere near as great as The Message.
Trying to be a Christian today.  Sep 26, 2009
Peterson helps us understand Jesus' parables and how they apply to today's life. He gives fresh, eye-opening insight for living. Along with the companion study guide, this would make a great book for a small group study.
Eugene Peterson is as good as ever.  Aug 23, 2009
In TELL IT SLANT, Eugene Peterson once again has written a book which gives Christians new insights into passages
of scripture which are so familiar that we are numb to their power. He takes from all the many sources he has at his
disposal, including good understanding of Hebrew and Greek, to produce a whole that grabs us, makes us say, "Yes,
I see that now!" What a joy, that a man of great gifts like Peterson uses them so well.
Read this book!  Apr 14, 2009
What a great book! Eugene Peterson is full of so much insight and cultural background. This is not a book for just serious academics, just the opposite, it's for everyone. As someone who has been involved in Christian education and formation I'd recommend this book for everyone.
